  He stated that the military are making moves to meet with stakeholders in order to maintain law and order in the region adding that the supports of the governors of various states and political leaders will be required if they will engage the militants.

“Government and military is using multi-faceted approach rather than force alone to ensure that resurgent attacks on oil and gas installations are stopped,” he said.

“We have told them (militants) to stop the destruction of oil and gas facilities and other critical national assets, as it negatively affects the economy with impact on livelihood of the people.

“If they (militants) have grievances, they should take it up with government rather than their current approach which is not in the best interest of the nation.

“If they continue to choose the path of bombing pipelines (after engagement moves), then we will go after them and deal with the situation appropriately.”

The military chief furthered that there will be a provision of more gun boats including military hard wares that the troop will use for their 24-hour patrol of about 5,000 creeks and waterways in the region

He added that the provisions of all these equipment will further boost capacity of Operation especially in the confrontation of oil theft and illegal bunkering of petroleum products in the region.
