It was a Harvest of Cheers and commendation for the Army Personnel attached to 14 bde Ohafia last weekend as they displayed their routine exercise known as “Show of Force”, with other security agencies in the state, which includes the Nigerian Navy and Department of State Service, led by the C/O 145 battalion.
According to our correspondent who monitored the exercise, residents who spoke on conditions of anonymity urged the Army to be more frequent with the exercise as it scares criminal elements away from the state.
An elderly man who spoke to our reporter said “it is only a criminal or a group with a criminal intention or a sinister plan that is usually uncomfortable with the presence of the Army or other security agencies.
” As for us we are very happy and comfortable with their presence as that is the only way we sleep with our two eyes closed.”
Abia Pulse reports that the operatives carried out the exercise simultaneously in the two major cities of Aba and Umuahia as s strategy to ward off the incessant and rising spate of crime in the state.
