The Nigerian Army said it has noted with great concern efforts by some unpatriotic individuals, groups and foreign interests determined to cause mischief and exacerbate the security situation in the country and West African Sub-region.
The spokesperson of the Army, Colonel Sagir Musa made this known in a statement, without being specific of these persons and groups that are making concerted efforts to induce further ISWAP/Boko Haram terrorists and bandits with funds and other logistic supports.
Credible source has shown that some individuals are hobnobbing with Boko Haram terrorists, while others are deliberately churning falsehood against the security agencies with a view to set the military against the people and the government, he added.
Musa said they are also demoralizing troops and security agencies through false accusations and fake news, adding that, it has therefore, become necessary to inform the public and warn such persons and groups to desist, as the consequences of their actions would be calamitous to themselves and our great country.
He also said, Nigeria is a sovereign country with clearly established judicial system, therefore all aggrieved persons and groups should take advantage of that and resolve differences amicably.
