The acting Director of Defence Information, Brig. Gen. John Agim, speaks on the allegation of military collusion with herdsmen in Taraba State and the killings in Zamfara, Kaduna and Benue, among other issues in this interview
The military has an ongoing operation, Whirl Stroke, which is supposed to tackle the violence in Taraba, Benue, Zamfara and Nasarawa states.
What is the progress report of that operation?
The operation, which is still ongoing, is tackling the security challenges in those areas. At least for some time now, there has been a reduction in the security issues around that axis.
Why the affected places are becoming calm is because of the operation in that area. If you check, most of the security challenges and killings in those areas have reduced drastically.
On a weekly basis and in fact on a daily basis, there are lots of strategies being put in place under this operation.
The operation in these four states will not end until there is normalcy there.
