Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, the Chief Of Army Staff, has said the Nigeria Army, in synergy with other security agencies are to look out for foreign intruders, that might want to corrupt the electoral process.
Buratai gave this pledge at the commissioning of Forward Operational Base (FOB), for the Third Division of the Nigerian Army in Sardauna Local Government Area of Taraba State. He said the base was established to help combat security threats, capable of jeopardizing the territorial integrity of the nation, assured that the influx of refugees into the Mambilla Plateau due to the crisis in neighbouring Cameroon, would not truncate the electoral process.
However, he pleaded with the politicians to avoid taking undue advantage of the humanitarian situation, and warned that the Army would not tolerate any act inimical to the peaceful conduct of the elections. Governor Darius Ishaku of Taraba State thanked the Chief of Army Staff for the foresight, to ensure that Taraba remains a safe place for all and sundry.
