Threats To Nigeria’s Existence Won’t Be Condoned – Dhq Warns


SAN FRANCISCO, May 09, (THEWILL) – Following the increasing attacks on oil installations in the Niger Delta by militants, the Defence Headquarters, DHQ, on Sunday warned individuals or groups “seeking relevance” to embrace the stipulations of the law and avoid brigandage

The Acting Director of Defence Information, Brig. Gen. Rabe Abubakar, said in a statement that the military would not tolerate acts that could cause a breakdown of law and order in the society.

While stressing that the military would not condone acts that constitute a threat to the nation's existence, he called on law-abiding citizens to report suspicious persons and objects to the security operatives for immediate action

According to Abubukar, “The Defence Headquarters hereby warns that it will not condone any unwholesome acts by persons or group seeking to engage in acts that are capable of causing a breakdown of law and order in any part of the country.

“Citizens are advised to refrain from taking the laws into their hands and avoid actions that may cause a breach to harmonious co-existence.

“The DHQ also wishes to advise the general public to ignore inciting pictures, videos and statements posted on some social media platforms which are now confirmed to be the creation of Photoshop, with the intention of causing disharmony and divisions among different nationalities.”

The Defence spokesman further assured the citizenry of the determination of the military and the security agencies to sustain the tempo of operations against terrorists, oil thieves, cattle rustlers and other acts of criminality in the society.
