Top military officers meet over attacks on security agents

Top military officers from the Defence Headquarters and other General Officers Commanding across all military divisions on Wednesday met behind closed doors in Abuja over attacks on security agents and their formations, particularly in the southeast.

The meeting was held at Transcorp Hotel, Abuja.

A source said the top officers discussed strategic moves on how to tame the attacks which were suspected to be carried out by members of proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

He said the military officers were worried that the attackers might descend on military formations in the zone when they were done with destroying police formations.

“The military officers are being proactive, hence their strategic meetings to ensure formations of Nigerian military in Southeast and other places are not attacked the same way police headquarters in Imo and the correctional centre were attacked.

“They are also meeting key stakeholders in the country to prevail on youths across six geo-political zones not to join miscreants wrecking havocs here and there,” the source said.

When contacted, Army spokesman, Brig.-Gen. Mohammed Yerima, said the military officers were only invited for an event at Transcorp hotel.
