The Senate Committee on Army has condemned the heinous and cowardly attack on the troops of Operation UDO KA at the Obikabia Junction Checkpoint in Abia State on the 30th of May, 2024, during the Biafra Remembrance Day.

“The assault orchestrated by the IPOB/ESN terrorists, resulting in the tragic loss of five personnel of the armed forces, is an affront to the peace and security of our nation,” Senator Abdulaziz Yar’adua
Chairman, Senate committee on the Nigerian Army, said in a statement.

Yar’Adua said: “Our hearts go out to the families and colleagues of the fallen soldiers, whose sacrifice in the line of duty will not be forgotten. Each soldier lost represents a significant loss to our nation’s defense and stability.


“We urge a comprehensive investigation into this despicable attack to ensure that justice is served and those responsible are brought to account. It is imperative that the lifeline of these terrorists, the people, recognize the gravity of their actions and refrain from offering support to such destructive elements.

“The Senate Committee on Army stands in solidarity with the armed forces and affirms our unwavering support for their efforts to protect our citizens and maintain peace in the region. We call for a decisive and resolute response from the military to combat this act of terror, ensuring the group responsible faces overwhelming military pressure until their complete defeat.

“In times like these, unity, resilience, and collective resolve are paramount. We must stand together against all forms of violence and insurgency that threaten the security and stability of our beloved nation.”
