Nigerian Army Launches “Operation Positive Identification” In North East |
The Nigerian Army Theatre Command of Operation Lafiya Dole (OPLD) has launched “Operation Positive Identification” against the fleeing Boko Haram/ISWAP terrorists in the North East.
The Deputy Director, Army Public Relation, OPLD, Col. Ado Isa, disclosed this in a statement on Sunday, September 21st urging the public to always carry valid means of identification when moving or passing through Adamawa, Borno and Yobe states.
Isa said the operation was aimed at searching for and arresting all suspected terrorists that currently roam some parts of the North East. This, according to him, has become necessary following credible information that some of the fleeing criminals are hibernating in some towns and villages of Borno and Yobe States in particular and North East in general.
Army spokesperson disclosed that the troops had been instructed to strictly check valid means of identification of person before allowing them passage. He advised people to always carry National Identification Card, Voters Registration Card, Drivers’ License and International Passports, or other valid official identification.
