Nigerian Military To Observe Ceasefire Despite Militants Continued Attacks On Pipelines

The Nigerian Army says it will continue to observe a two-week ceasefire declared by Federal Government, even as militants continue their attacks on oil installations in the Niger Delta region.

Ibrahim Attahiru, a major general and General Officer Commanding (GOC), 82 Division of the
Nigerian Army, said this yesterday, while briefing journalists on the outcome of a meeting held at the Army Headquarters in Abuja.

He said the decision was part of the resolutions reached at the meeting of field commanders and
principal staff officers, convened by the Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai, in Abuja.

He, however, warned that the military would resume its operations in the region if the militants continued to disregard the ceasefire.
