The General Officer Commanding (GOC) 6 Division, Nigerian Army, Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Maj.- Gen. Jamil Sarham, has proclaimed that staff of the division will manage political hooligans in Rivers State and different parts of Niger Delta.
He made the presentation yesterday in Port Harcourt through 6 division’s Deputy Director, Army Public Relations, Col. Aminu Iliyasu.
The 6 Division spreads Akwa Ibom, Bayelsa, Delta and Rivers states.
The GOC stated:
“Credible intelligence available to Headquarters 6 Division, Nigerian Army has uncovered an unholy plan by some political actors within its Area of Responsibility (AOR) to arm and sponsor miscreants, in addition to using military-like fatigue dress for deception to cause pandemonium at polling stations for their political gain.
“While covert efforts are ongoing to track the source of the weapons and the agents involved, in conjunction with sister security agencies, authorities of 6 Division wish to unequivocally state that anyone found to be disrupting the electoral process, under any guise, will be decisively dealt with, in accordance with the laws, no matter how highly placed he or she is.”
Maj.- Gen. Sarham likewise consoled the “great individuals” of Niger Delta of giving satisfactory security, related to other security offices, previously, amid and after the current year’s general decisions. The GOC praised the Niger Delta indigenes for the participation and help rendered to the division, especially in data spread. He asked them to accomplish more.”
