“The attack sadly took the lives of 5 personnel of the armed forces killed in action. The armed forces mourn the death of these troops as each and every soldier lost in battle is a terrible loss. Meanwhile, investigations concerning the attack are ongoing.”

In general, it is crucial to emphasize that the support of the people is vital to the sustenance of terrorist activities, and this case is no different. Achieving victory in the fight against terrorism becomes significantly challenging without the backing of the populace.

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) exploited this dynamic to carry out assaults on the troops. This scenario underscores the need for further improvement and action.

“Accordingly, it is absolutely imperative that the military retaliate against this dastardly act against troops. The military would be fierce in its response. We would bring overwhelming military pressure on the group to ensure their total defeat.”.……..See More
