Recall that the Chief of Defence Staff, General Christopher Musa, has vowed that those behind the death of military personnel in Delta would be hunted down. This is as families mourn the death of their loved ones with many of them lamenting that they lost their breadwinners.

CDS Musa on Wednesday promised that the perpetrators of the heinous crime would be brought to justice. He spoke at the burial ceremony held for the slain soldiers in Abuja.

Musa said, “To the perpetrators of violence who seek to sow division and fear among our people, know this: our resolve will not waver. We will hunt you down, we will bring you to justice, and we will restore peace and security to every nook and cranny of our dear nation”.

While speaking at the burial ceremony for the slain personnel at the National Military Cemetery in Abuja  which also had President Bola Tinubu in attendance, among other dignitaries, the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Taoreed Lagbaja, regretted that 21 children had been orphaned and 10 women widowed by the killing of the military personnel in Delta State. He also disclosed that out of the 10 widows, three of them are four, five, and eight months pregnant.
