Comments Off on Soldiers’ Killings: Declare Nigeria A Nation At War – Okorocha | | November 30, 2018 1:09 PM

Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha said with the recent killings of many soldiers by the insurgents in Borno State, Nigeria must declare itself  a nation at war.

Okorocha spoke yesterday when officers from the Armed Forces Command and Staff College (AFCSC) Jaji, paid him a courtesy visit at the Government House, Owerri.

The governor said: “A nation has to be in a serious war to lose 10 soldiers, not to talk about 40 soldiers. So Nigeria must declare itself as a nation at war.

“What I think is happening in the North-East is what was happening here in Imo State when I came in 2011. Owerri was notorious for kidnapping and we were number one State for kidnapping when I came in to the extent that by 5.30 or 6pm everybody had gone home for fear of being kidnapped. But we tackled it and overcame.”
