Agitators For Separation Are Noise Makers – Buhari

As a show of solidarity to the nation’s armed forces, President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday took a trip to Maiduguri, Borno State, the epicenter of the Boko Haram crisis to honour the courage and sacrifices of the armed forces on the occasion of Nigeria’s 57th independence anniversary.

While at the Parade Ground of the 212 Battalion, Maimalari Cantonment, Maiduguri, which houses the headquarters of the Theatre Command, code named ‘Operation Lafiya Dole’, Buhari took time out to criticise those calling for the division of the country, insisting that they were ignorant of the negative consequences of warfare.

He described the agitators for secession as noise makers who were probably not born when the civil war broke out in 1967 and ended in 1970.

He advised the military personnel to always be on top of their game in defending the country and its populace, noting that If Nigeria breaks up the military will be the first line of losers hence must stand firm for themselves and for the country in general.
