You Can’t Divide Nigeria In My Time, Buratai Tells Biafran Agitators

Chief of Army staff, Tukur
Buratai, has told those agitating for an independent
state to "forget it."

Of the groups clamouring for
sovereignty, the campaigns
of Independent People of
Biafra (IPOB) and the
Movement for the
Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra
(MASSOB) are the most
pronounced. They have even had the cause
to clash with security agents. Chief of Army Staff, Lt-Gen. Tukur
Buratai Speaking in Abuja Monday
after receiving an award
conferred on him by a
coalition of over 80 civil
society organisations (CSOs),
Buratai said the army would not condone any act that
could lead to the
disintegration of the country.

He also promised that
insurgency would soon be a
thing of the past. "Those individuals and
groups that are bent on
destablising our country I
think they have to wait till
may be the next three or four
millennia for them to do that. That is, may be the next
generation of officers and
men will allow them at all,"
he said. "Having been given the
millennium hero award, I
want to call on all the
agitators for separation and
other acts of destabilisation,
they better forget it, not in this era, not in this
millennium. "I want to say that we would
continue to do our best to
maintain security
atmosphere that is needed
as provided for in the
constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria. We have
been tasked to defend our
country. "We have taken a number of
measures to ensure that the
remnants of the Boko Haram
terrorists who are on the run
are finally cleared, many have
surrendered, many of them have been captured
