Military Issues Fresh Warning To Troublemakers Ahead of Off-Cycle Elections

The military high command yesterday declared that troops deployed for governorship elections in Kogi, Bayelsa and Imo States would inflict injuries on anyone attempting to disrupt the exercise.

Addressing journalists at Defence Headquarters in Abuja, the Director of Media Operations, Major-General Edward Buba, said the military was aware of plans by some individuals to dress in military uniform to disrupt the electoral processes in the three states on Saturday during the gubernatorial elections.

Stressing that the military will not allow its image to be, in his own words, dragged through the mud, Major-General Buba also said the military was determined to give the elections the seriousness it deserved.

He added that troops and platforms were being moved to locations in order to reinforce security already in place in those states, adding that security agencies are ready to identify and differentiate between real soldiers and the fake ones.

He also notified the press that the military is inflicting severe damage on terrorists, insurgents and violent extremists through operations across the country, and is expecting new platforms that would further enhance its capabilities to further root out terrorists and destroy their military capabilities.
