FOLLOWING the sit-at-home call by Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPoB), General Officer Commanding (GOC) 82 Division of Nigerian Army, Enugu, Major-General Emmanuel Kabuk, has warned “trouble-makers” to steer clear from the entire South-East or get ready to face the music.

Kabuk gave the warning in Enugu yesterday while addressing a joint security team specially designated to patrol Enugu metropolis and its environs, stressing that army will leave no stone unturned in flushing out miscreants who may want to breach public peace by molesting people going about their lawful businesses at any town or village under the command of 82 Division.

According to him, over 50 vehicles have been made available for the special security team for a round-the-clock patrol of major roads, avenues and streets within Enugu metropolis.

Comprising officers and men of Nigerian Army, Nigerian Air-Force, Nigerian Police, Department of State Security, Police Mobile Squadron 3, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Federal Road Safety Corps, Nigerian Immigration Services, Nigeria Customs Services and Anti-Cultism Unit of Enugu State Police Command, the joint security team is a rapid response squad constituted to rise up to any emergency that may result from activities of any misguided group, Kabuk explained.

“We are observing this training together to further improve our efficiency and proficiency in the internal security duties as well as understand each other better in the line of duty. With this exercise, we are clearly sounding a note of warning for trouble-makers to steer clear the entire South-East and other places of 82 Division Areas of responsibility.

We want the existing peace in South-East to continue unhindered. We will not fold our arms as members of the security community in this state and entire South-East and watch any misguided individual or group to molest and intimidate innocent and law-abiding citizens,” he warned.

However, a spokesman of IPoB, Emma Powerful has reiterated the group’s resolve to monitor people’s compliance with the sit-at-home call, insisting that no agency of government can successfully resist them.

“The order from IPOB remains that every Biafran, both home and abroad, is expected to stay indoors, away from work, market and roads, from dusk on Thursday, September 13 (today) to dawn on Friday, September 14, 2018 (tomorrow). We wish to reaffirm our resolve and determination to ensure a total lockdown of the whole of Biafraland comprising South East and South South of present-day Nigeria, contrary to the childish and laughable utterances and threats from poorly educated Fulani police commissioners in Imo, Anambra and Enugu States and their army collaborators,” he said in a Twitter post.
