Army to launch ‘Operation Accord’ over farmers, herdsmen clash

Nigerian Military confirms that it is set to launch “Operation Accord”, which is aiming its end at the clashes between farmers and herdsmen in the country. The announcement was made by the director of information, Officer of the Chief of Defence Staff, Brigadier-General Rabe Abubakar in Warri, Delta State.

“Anytime from now, it will become operationalised and the issues of herdsmen going against innocent citizens will be a thing of the past,” he said.

Abubakar has already vowed that all those that held hostage by Boko Haram will also be rescued.

“I am assuring Nigerians that the Armed Forces and security agents will never leave any stone unturned to rescue all those that have been taken hostage by the Boko Haram insurgents.

“The Nigerian military and security agencies are extending the hand of fellowship by way of collaboration, synergising and seeking your cooperation and understanding.

“Media is one of the key stakeholders and partner in most of the military operations in the Nigeria spectrum and has been an agent in fostering peaceful and harmonious relationship,” he said.
