The Defence Headquarters has deployed more troops to communities in Southern Kaduna as part of efforts to address the incessant attacks, and killings in the state.
Legit.ng gathered that this was revealed by the coordinator, Defence Media Operations (DMO), Maj. Gen. John Enenche, on Thursday, August 13, during the weekly press conference at the DHQ, Abuja.
Enenche, speaking on the measures to address the criminality in Southern Kaduna and other parts of the country, said special forces on Operation Safe Haven were carrying out patrols at the various flashpoints in the communities
While noting that the move was expected to curb the bloodshed, Enenche expressed confidence that the atrocities in the north-west would be suppressed soon.
He went on to note that with the provision of credible and actionable intelligence, this move is expected to achieve the desired result.
Enenche stated: “In a bid to curb the recent attacks and isolated killings in Southern Kaduna, troops of Operation Safe Haven have continued to intensify efforts aimed at securing the lives and property in the general area.
“Particularly, Special Operations Forces have been deployed to the Joint Operations Area covering the various flashpoints. This move is expected to achieve the desired result with the provision of credible and actionable intelligence specifically from primary sources.”
The coordinator further urged members of the public not to give false information on the issue of terrorism or banditry in Kaduna.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that some clerics under the aegis of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Nigeria, have expressed sadness over the loss of lives and property in Southern Kaduna.
The clerics noted that the killings have been persistent because the perpetrators had not been brought to justice.
They said there won't be peace in the area if the federal and state governments fail to punish the perpetrators. The clerics advised Catholics across the country to pray for an end to the killings.
In a statement in Abuja by their president, Most Rev. Augustine Akubeze, the conference warned against politicising the killings.
