Security operatives are important members of the public that dedicate their lives to serve their country. There are mischievous people who share misinformation and falsehood, especially across social media platforms with regard to the operation of the security forces in some parts of the country. This is utterly disrespectful. It is against the law to create or share something ng that will incite members of the general public against a particular group.
The federal government has deployed a special tactical command to tackle the violent activities of the alleged 'unknown gunmen' terrorising the southeastern region of the country. It is necessary for people living in these areas to be respectful and collaborative with the security forces for them to discharge their duties efficiently. The recent attacks on security formations and outposts in Enugu and Anambra states is a major setback that undermines the authority and capacity of the Nigerian security forces. The soldiers have a mandate to thwart attacks and restore normalcy in the region thereby incapacitating the members of the proscribed organisation from carrying out further attacks.
The Nigerian security forces play important roles in safeguarding the nation and ensure security threats are mitigated. For instance, before the deployment of the Special Tactical Command in the southeastern part of the country, there have been multiple reports of attacks on vehicles conveying goods in the southeast. This is as a result of the Sit-At-Home order imposed by the proscribed organisation. The presence of security agents on patrol provide a fragile peace in the affected communities. The destruction of foodstuffs has caused a huge financial loss on local businesses.

The security of lives and properties of people is the foremost responsibility of the government. As such, the Nigerian Army has recently announced a nationwide military operation targeted at neutralising security challenges and threats across the six geopolitical zones of the country. More support and contribution from the public is necessary toward achieving a lasting peace.
