The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) yesterday said the military would employ all available means and measures within its rules of engagement to crush any individual or group that destroys government infrastructure.
A statement from defence spokesman, Brigadier General Rabe Abubakar said the DHQ was not unaware of the emergence of a group in the Niger Delta region which has vowed to cripple economic activities through pipeline vandalism, oil theft and kidnap of expatriate workers in that region.
He warned that the military would not hesitate to deploy every available resource to deal decisively with any threat to the economic lifeline of the nation.
“They will stand to regret the consequences of their actions. The whole world has seen what they are causing in terms of economic terrorism against the nation and would be treated as criminals in line with the laws of the land,” he said.
He said the military and other security agencies would continue to employ more proactive measures within the creeks and other places to fish out those responsible for the heinous crime.
He assured oil companies and law abiding community members of their safety and protection. Abubakar called on community leaders, traditional rulers and the general public to cooperate with security agencies to ensure the apprehension of the culprits in the interest of the nation, saying no individual or group interest is above national interest.
