    Army ‘ll not succumb to intimidation by INTERSOCIETY, IPOB – Nwachukwu

    The Nigerian Army says it will not succumb to intimidation by the International Society for Civil Liberty and Rule of Law (INTERSOCIETY) in its effort to rubbish army’s image and reputation.

    The Director, Army Public Relations, Brig.-Gen. Onyema Nwachukwu, said this in a statement on Saturday in Abuja.

    Nwachukwu said that INTERSOCIETY had continued with its antics of dragging the image of the Nigerian army in the mud while promoting irredentists, lawless and outlawed organisations.

    He said the allegation by the organisation that the Nigerian military, especially the army had been working with armed to terrorise the Eastern part of the country and Benue  was libelous, spurious and derogatory.

    According to him, a cursory look at the content reveals a business-as-usual pattern of propaganda by the well known, paid jobbers and fifth columnists christened INTERSOCIETY.

    “Unfortunately for these mischief makers, the highly patriotic and untiring efforts of the Nigerian army to neutrally defend the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Nigeria is visible enough and boldly seen by all and have received international accolades.

    “It is on this unmistakable pedigree, that the army wishes to dismiss these concoctions and evil propaganda peddled and served to unsuspecting members of the public by INTERSOCIETY, covertly sponsored by the proscribes Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) and the Eastern Security Network  (ESN) with the singular purpose of destabilising our dear nation.

    “It is on record, that the Nigerian army conducted and will still conduct series of exercises not only in the South Eastern states, but across all the states of the Federation.

    “This has reasonably reduced criminality especially in the South East, where INTERSOCIETY’s cohorts like IPOB and ESN can  no longer enjoy freedom of action to unleash death and mayhem on Ndigbo and other Nigerians, who do not support their evil bid.

    “INTERSOCIETY’s unprofessional posture is crystal clear and evident in its biased and unbalanced submissions and reportage, as it has never openly condemned the atrocious activities of ESN, for which it is fronting.

    “INTERSOCIETY will rather turn a blind eye, when these groups illegally deny law abiding citizens their rights to freedom of movement and association,  through their illegal sit-at-home order, the attack on military, police, paramilitary personnel and other security agencies, the attack and callous beheading of Nigerians including Ndigbo, the destruction of government facilities and infrastructure, amongst myriads of other nefarious activities,” he said.

    Nwachukwu said that army had through the conduct of its exercises, checkmated and drastically reduced their criminal activities and other sundry crimes in South Eastern Nigeria.

    He said the recently concluded Nigerian Army Day Celebration (NADCEL) 2022 held in Owerri, Imo, saw the Nigerian army bringing succor to the South Easterners through organised medical outreaches, renovation of schools, sinking of boreholes and road repairs.

    These, according to him, are totally in dissonance with the image being concocted of the Nigerian army by the glorified Civil Society Organisation (INTERSOCIETY) and their collaborators.

    “The Nigerian army therefore, remains a professional institution that is resolved to protect the territorial integrity of Nigeria and will never be distracted by mischief makers, who find pleasure in blackmailing and defaming the institution to gain cheap publicity and satisfy the interest of fifth columnists, in their unrelenting effort to destabilise the nation.

    The army is not by this reaction denying the presence of black sheep in its fold, just like in any other organisation or institution.

    “We are  very mindful of  and actively monitoring and effectively handling the issue of black ship in our  fold within the provisions of extant laws.

    “We call on INTERSOCIETY to channel its energy like the Nigerian army into nation building, rather than tearing our nation apart.

    Nigeria remains our nation and no other.

    “The Nigerian army will continue to count on the support of all Nigerians and the international community, as it selflessly continues to carry out its constitutional mandate to defend Nigeria and restore sanity and peace in all troubled parts of the country,” he added.

    Don calls for inter-agency collaboration to tackle insecurity

    Prof. Osita Ogbu of the Institute for Development Studies, University of Nigeria, Nsukka, has advocated inter-security agency collaboration to tackle insecurity in the country.
    Ogbu made the call in a lecture at the Nigerian Army Day Celebration (NADCEL) 2022 on Tuesday in Owerri.
    He spoke on the theme: “Curbing insecurity in Nigeria and the imperative of inter-security agency’ collaboration and coordination.”
    He underscored the need for a strong synergy among security agencies in the country to effectively fight crime and criminality.
    He, therefore, urged security agencies to rise against human elements hindering intelligence coordination, such as rivalry, mutual distrust, indiscipline, superiority complex and poor inter-services’ communication.
    Ogbu said that the spate of insecurity in the country was alarming, hence the need for “a heightened sense of national duty for positive outcomes”.
    “Coordination of inter-agency intelligence is an art, requiring high national morality, character, humility, diligence, innovation, adaptation, incentives, competence, institutional re-configuration and patriotism.
    “It is our collective responsibility to change the current state of affairs by the decisions and choices we make.
    “We can all aspire to create islands of excellence in our work areas and duties, for together, we shall overcome,” he said.
    In a speech, the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Farouk Yahaya, called for all hands to be on deck to properly harness the skills and competences of various security agencies.
    He promised to look into the issues raised during the lecture, with a view to implementing the recommendations capable of enhancing the nation’s security.
    Also, Gov. Hope Uzodimma of Imo said that inter-agency collaboration was already working in the state.
    Uzodinma said that the choice of the state for the NADCEL had strengthened the sense of security among residents of the state.
    He called for increased support from the civil populace to the “patriotic struggle” of the Nigerian Army to secure the territorial integrity of the country.
    He expressed the hope that the war against all forms of criminality would soon be completely won.
