Written By Godstime Silas

The Defence Headquarters has vowed to take decisive action in response to the killing of five soldiers by the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in Abia state. The Director of Defence Media Operations, Maj-Gen. Edward Buba, stated that the military will apply significant pressure to defeat the group. This comes after IPOB fighters attacked a checkpoint in Obingwa local government area on Thursday, May 30, killing five soldiers.

Maj-Gen. Buba expressed condolences for the lost troops and announced that investigations into the incident are ongoing. He emphasized the importance of public support in combating terrorism, saying, “The military cannot win the war without the support of the people.” He acknowledged that IPOB exploited this to launch attacks on troops and stressed the need for a robust response.

The military has pledged to take firm action to prevent future attacks and ensure the defeat of the group. The situation is being closely monitored, and efforts are being made to prevent further violence.
