Nigerian Military Denounces Unlawful Violence as Kerang Mangu Community Faces Consequences for Attack on Airforce Personnel

In a swift response to the violent attack and property destruction by irate youths in the Kerang communities, Operation SAFE HAVEN has successfully apprehended the perpetrators and seized a cache of dangerous weapons used in the assault. The Plateau State-based operation strongly condemns the actions that not only included property destruction and looting but also an attack on Airforce Personnel enforcing the 24-hour curfew in Kerang Mangu.

The shocking act of aggression saw the youth of Kerang Mangu launching an assault on the troops deployed to maintain peace and security during the curfew. This attack, which involved firing at the troops’ patrol vehicles, posed a significant threat to the safety of both military personnel and the community at large.

In the subsequent operation to apprehend the attackers, the military successfully recovered a substantial arsenal of weapons. The seized items include one AK-47 rifle, four locally fabricated automatic rifles, one locally made mortar bomb launcher, seven empty shells of 7.62mm, one empty shell of a cartridge, one pistol magazine, 36 Boris, three rounds of 7.62mm, and seven rounds of 9 x 19mm.

The Nigerian Military strongly denounces this reckless and unlawful act of violence, emphasizing its commitment to upholding the rule of law and maintaining peace and stability within the community. The military urges the people of Kerang and all citizens to refrain from engaging in acts of violence, emphasizing that the imposition of the 24-hour curfew is essential for the collective well-being of the community.
