By Olivia Isibor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The Chief of Defence Staff, General Lucky Irabor, has assured the people of Zamfara State that the military was committed to flushing out the bad eggs responsible for the insecurity in the state and other parts of the country.
Irabor gave this assurance at the Government House. Gasua, the Zamfara State capital, while on a working visit with the new Service Chiefs to the state to assess the security situation and ongoing military operations to end the security challenges.
According to the defence chief, it is time to bring an end to the security challenges bedeviling the state and the country at large, assuring that the military would go all-out against criminal elements who do not want peace to prevail in the country.
In his words, “We are aware of expectations arising from the unending state of insecurity in Zamfara State; the whole essence of establishing Operation Hadarin Daji is to work in partnership with the other security agencies and ensure that peace returns.
“We are here as soldiers, we are only after bad people, we deal with bad people, we come because we don’t want people to live in fear anymore.”
“But we need you (traditional rulers) to support us, we need you to pass relevant information; you’ve been doing it, but I also pray and urge you to increase the tempo,” he added.
