Defence Headquarters (DHQ) yesterday spat fire, threatening to deal ruthlessly with any groups or individuals who embark engage in acts of sabotage against the Nigerian state.

“The military and other security agencies will not condone any acts by individuals or group that is capable of breach to security and economic sabotage in the Niger Delta or in any part of the country. This is because the nation’s interest is above that of individual or group’s interest,” Director of Defence Information, Brigadier General Rabe Abubakar, said.

“Inasmuch as the military recognises the supremacy of the Constitution which guarantees freedom of expression and association, the constitution also frowns against individuals or groups hiding under it to stir up trouble and insecurity in the land. Any individual or groups who have genuine complain or grievances should use the available means of dialogue for amicable resolution but certainly not violence, as it will not be tolerated,” Abubakar said in a statement issued in Abuja.

He assured that “DHQ will continue to partner with other security agencies to protect and provide enabling environment to all citizens to engage in their respective and legitimate businesses without fear of molestation.”
