He stated that the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), Gen. Christopher Musa, has assured Nigerians that the military would engage in every lawful means possible to ensure peace and stability reign in our dear nation.

The statement reads: “The DHQ assures Nigerians that its non-kinetic measures aimed at restoration of peace are yielding results, with several bandits and other criminal elements surrendering to authority.

“Governments at all levels are encouraged to allow bandits genuinely willing to surrender to do so while the window is still open.

“The DHQ is doing everything possible to restore peace and tranquillity all over the country and urge all citizens to remain calm and be law-abiding.”
