Defence Headquarters, DHQ, has warned the public to be mindful of their utterances and actions against military personnel.

Director of Defence Media Operations, Major-General Edward Buba gave this warning at a press conference in Abuja yesterday, in reaction to the recent assault on unarmed personnel in Banex Plaza in Abuja. 

He expressed worry over the consistent and unprovoked attack on personnel, making reference to the killing of 17 troops in Okuama in Delta State. 

According to him, the act is unhealthy for national security, counter-productive and amounts to self sabotage. 

“Meanwhile, the unprovoked killing of 17 personnel in Okuama coupled with the recent assault of unarmed personnel in Banex Plaza in Abuja is worrisome and leaves much to be desired. These occurrences are unhealthy for our national security, counter-productive and amounts to self sabotage. 

“Surely, it is no way to treat any human, certainly not a military personnel that places self in harms way to protect citizens or safeguard the nation.

“The military has demonstrated high sense of discipline and professionalism in the face of untoward attacks. Our professionalism must not be mistaken for weakness.

“Indeed, we know that to win this war, we need the support of the people. We also hope that the people would equally realize that they need the military to win the war to guarantee their safety,” he stated. 

General Buba stressed that the military has demonstrated high sense of discipline and professionalism in the face of untoward attacks. 

He emphasized that this jeopardizes the nation’s common interest. 

He enjoined that troops should be reported if they err and the military justice system will address the matter.
