Due to the increased rate of bombings of oil pipelines by suspected militants and crises currently rocking the Niger Delta, the Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has reiterated its will to deal decisively with all forms of crises, that threaten the security of the nation.

Responding to enquiry on the capacity of Operation Pulo Shield in the Niger Delta, to contain the apparent resurgence of pipeline vandalism, the Acting Director of Defence Information (DDI), Brigadier-General Rabe Abubakar, said: “The Nigerian military is adequately prepared to quell any crisis not only in Niger delta but any other part of the country.

“For the avoidance of doubt no security agencies, including military, would allow some individuals or group to cause insecurity in this great country of ours.

“Those who may want to do so should have a rethink as crisis never pays as there is no alternative to peace. We should know that this country is more than anybody.”

He further said: “The military will continue to serve to ensure one nation one destiny. Citizens should learn from other country where conflicts rendered them stagnant and undeveloped.

“This is our country we have to join hands to develop it and not to destroy; the military will never allow any individual or group interest to be above the nation interest,” Abubakar stated.
