Thirdly, the COAS warned that the Army will deal decisively with the attackers, currently causing problems in the affected region. The COAS while speaking with Channels Television disclosed that the Nigerian Army is aware of the forthcoming, Anambra State governorship election, scheduled for 6 November 2021. He spoke about the mayhem of the unknown gunmen in Anambra State, he said the army, will ensure the criminals are dealt with decisively if they don't desist from their actions. The operations have brought arrays of hope to the people of these regions, especially in the Southeast.

The joint operations will ensure peace is restored to these regions, the economic consequences of the destruction of IPOB and Unknown Gunmen are like a ticking time bomb that will explode in the faces of Igbo people and cause hardship. The operations will record success if only the people will join hands with the army, to fight back and reclaim, Igbo land from the criminals.
