Election: Nigerian Army Warns Trouble-makers In South-East

Maj.-Gen. Aminu Chinade, the General Officer Commanding (GOC) 82 Division Nigerian Army, has assured South-East residents of adequate security before, during and after the general election.

Chinade warned trouble-makers to steer clear of the zone, as the Nigeria Army was “highly prepared and motivated to give them a bloody nose”.

The GOC gave the assurance on Thursday in Enugu while addressing troops deployed for election security in various parts of the region.

He assured that the Army and other sister security agencies were prepared to provide robust and adequate security to ensure peaceful and successful elections in the region.

“I will urge all our brothers and sisters in the South-East to come out en masse to vote massively without any fear of molestation.

“They should disregard the empty threat issued by a fugitive in Europe and other threats coming from any miscreant saying that they should not come out and vote.

“Adequate security arrangements have been put in place all over the South-East to ensure that every Nigerian especially our brothers and sisters in the South-East exercise their franchise and vote without any fear.

“Those that feel within any reason that they want to disrupt this election, they are in for a bloody nose.”

The GOC further warned that the Army had deployed resources to decisively deal with any negative situation.
