Imo State Governor, Mr Rochas Okorocha, has appealed to residents of the state not to panic over heavy presence of soldiers in the state capital, Owerri.
In a statement issued on Saturday evening by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Sam Onwuemeodo, the Governor explained that soldiers were in the state for the Chief Of Army Staff’s Conference, which would be declared open by President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday, December 5, 2016.
Mr Okorocha said the “soldiers would be in Owerri to brainstorm on the way forward for the Nigerian Army and the nation at large.”
Over 460 officers of the Nigeria Army are expected to participate in the forum.
It should be recalled that the General Officer Commanding (GOC) 82 Division Enugu, General Ibrahim Attahiru, had earlier visited Imo State to meet with the Governor over the conference.
