Brig-Gen. Onyema Nwachukwu, the Director of Army Public Relations in Abuja, made a statement that included this.
According to Nwachukwu, Chief Babatunde Oyetunji, Eesa of Ifon, claimed in a statement that the Nigerian Army had decided to forcibly seize land in the Orolu Community for a planned project.
He claimed that the accusations were completely untrue, spiteful, and an attempt by some special interests to damage the reputation of the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) and discredit the organization.
The Non-kinetic line of operations is, in fact, one of the strategies used by the Nigerian army to address security issues in the nation.
It is a tactful strategy that uses the Nigerian Army’s Civil-Military Cooperation initiatives or programs to win over the public’s hearts and minds.
“Therefore, the Nigerian army typically implements special community intervention projects, such as hospitals, boreholes, electrification, among others, based on needs assessment, after consulting with the leadership of such communities,” he said.
