The Defence Headquarters has assured Nigerians resident in different parts of the country that they need not be afraid of the unknown as the October 1st deadline threat earlier issued by Northern youths to southeast people
resident in the North approaches.
The military hierarchy at a briefing said they have taken all measures to enforce constitutional provisions and the presidential directive that all citizens are free to live wherever they feel like without harassment by ethnic groups or militias.
Defence Headquarters Spokesman, Major General John Enenche said political authorities have made the job of the military easier through the success recorded by their peace and diplomatic shuttles.
He denied reports that his last briefing had anything to do with the proscription of the Indigenous People of Biafra saying the public misinterpreted his statement.
On Nnamdi Kanu’s whereabouts, he denied that the IPOB leader is in their custody while also justifying the military clampdown on the now proscribed group.
While the foreign military think tank says Nigeria is gradually being militarized as soldiers are constantly rolled out for issues that could be tackled by the police, the Spokesman said the Defence Headquarters is not alarmed.
