Military Warns Journalists On Danger Of Visit To Chibok

The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has raised the alarm over the large number of jour­nalists, tourists and other ad­venturers, who have suddenly turned Chibok, Borno State and the entire North-East into tourists’ site.
The military said the development constitutes unnecessary risk and undue obstruction  to operations especially to foreigners, noting that such obstructive, suspicious or risky movements of visitors, would not be condoned.
It has therefore, warned such people to stop their adventure, saying military operations in the region is ongoing and would not need the presence of adventurers without the necessary security cover and clearance.
In a statement issued yesterday in Abuja, the DHQ while noting that “much as the military has nothing to hide and believes in the freedom of movement in the country, the need for all persons to recognize the status of certain places as operational area is hereby reiterated”.
The military said: “Anyone violating the existing procedures for coverage or movements in the mission area does so at his or her own peril as the security forces should not be held responsible for any unsavory outcome of such movement”.
It, however, assured that necessary arrangement would be made for the protection of persons and visitors whose movement is cleared by the military in line with development of the security situation on ground in a particular mission area.
The statement said: “The general public is hereby informed that obstructive, suspicious or risky movements of visitors will not be condoned in any mission and operational area in the country”.
Several foreign media like the CNN and Alajezeera have recently been sending correspondents to the volatile Chibok .
