The President and Commander-in-Chief, Federal Republic of Nigeria Bola Ahmed Tinubu has given a matching order to security agencies to fish out those enforcing sit-at-home order in the East and killers of uniform men.

The President gave the order after receiving news of killing of five soldiers by suspected militants of the proscribed terrorist organisation, IPOB at Aba Abia State.

The slain soldiers were on peacekeeping duty in Aba, Abia State, on Thursday when they were murdered, just two months after a similar tragic incident happened in Okuama, Delta State.

According to President Bola, the fact that the security forces are exercising necessary restraints when attacked should not be mistaken for weakness.

He warned that the Federal Government  will come down heavily against those who have made it a habit to needlessly attack the officers and men of our armed forces.

On no account should anyone, under any guise, have the audacity to kill agents of state.

He added that it is important to make it clear that the government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the armed forces have the capacity to crush violent non-state actors, making our communities unsafe.

The Commander-in-Chief  said, “our soldiers and the police have the onerous duty to protect all of us from aggressors and criminal non-state actors.

Hundreds of them have paid the ultimate price in fulfilment of their duty, while some have experienced the indignity of being manhandled by the people they protect.

They surely do not deserve the mindless attacks by unruly elements in our society.

“We are working to build a peaceful and harmonious society, but nobody should be under any illusion that the government will not act appropriately when the lives of our officers and men are wantonly taken”.

“I urge security agencies not only to fish out the masterminds and perpetrators of the Aba attack but also those calling on people to stay at home. Their actions are nothing short of treason”.

He commiserate with the families of the five slain soldiers, their colleagues, and the leadership of the armed forces, urging other men and women on peacekeeping duty not to be discouraged by the unfortunate incident in Aba.
