OPI: Army makes clarifications, says any form of Identification is okay

The Theatre Command, Operation LAFIYA DOLE has accused some Non Governmental Organizations (NGO) working in Nigeria’s North East of engaging in “notorious” activities to sabotage Nigeria’s anti-terrorism war.

Spokesman of the Command, Col Ado Isa, particularly named the group known as Action Against Hunger for providing food and water to the terrorists.

Col Isa, in a statement on Thursday, lamented that despite repeated warnings, the NGO continued to commit the infractions.

He claimed that the command had on several occasions raised the alarm over the issue during meetings with the NGOs operating in the North East Theater of Operation.

“The Command has obtained several credible intelligence indicating AAH as one of those NGOs operating in the NE that is notorious in supplying food and drugs to the criminals in the area.

“Members of the public are enjoined to continue to give credible information on the activities of the marauders/criminals and their supporters in the NE Theatre of operation.

“The OPLD wishes to assure the public of its resolve and determination to always partner with credible NGOs and CSOs to cushion the impact of humanitarian crisis generated by the criminals in the NE in line with the international best standards.”
