The 23rd Amour Brigade of the Nigerian Army in Yola has vowed to crush any group bent on fomenting trouble in Adamawa state.

Adamawa has faced bloody attacks by suspected herders and the Brigade, Commander Brig. Gen. Bello Mohammed, says such will no longer be tolerated.

Mohammed spoke on Thursday in Yola during a town hall meeting of stakeholders, stressing that the military would go hard on those who failed to embrace peace and dialogue in resolving differences.

“The crisis that initially started in Numan and environs spread to four LGAs namely; Girei, Demsa and Lamurde, and later to parts of Taraba,” he said.

“Sadly, the measures and strategies employed by security agencies have not yielded the desired effect; the stakeholders have regarded our soft handedness measures as weakness and incapable of dealing with the situation.

“Henceforth, we members of the security agencies forum have collectively resolved to tackle this mayhem and unwarranted killings at all cost.

“The first deliberate step towards permanently resolving this issue is this town hall meeting. It is part of soft power approach to internal security situations, it would be followed by hard and smart power approaches. To be forewarned is to be forearmed.”
