Lucky Irabor, chief of defence staff, has mandated the troops of Operation Udoka to redouble their efforts and flush out criminal elements destabilising peace and businesses in the south-east states.
Irabor spoke on Tuesday while addressing the troops at the headquarters of the Nigerian army 82 division in Enugu.
The defence chief praised the troops for a “very successful operation leading to violence-free, fair and credible elections in the south east”.
“You are mandated to flush out the criminal elements disturbing the peace and socio-economic well-being of the south-east,” NAN quoted Irabor as saying.
From the briefs, I have been receiving from the general officer commanding 82 division, who is the overall commander of the operation and other field commanders, I am proud of your conduct during the general election.
“I say well done to you for your effectiveness and commitment that led to a resounding success during the general election.
“However, it is not over yet, I want you to redouble your efforts and get ready for more serious work to see that pockets of insecurity in the South-east by criminal elements are totally checked.”
