Army to demand identity cards from Nigerians

Nigerians will henceforth be requested to carry identification cards to prove their identity to the military as the Nigerian Army begins quick profiling of citizens under a new military exercise, codenamed: Operation Positive Identification.

The exercise, according to the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, is to uncover those with questionable identities.

He said the operation will also stop dislodged and fleeing insurgents from accessing peaceful zones.

Buratai, who gave the hint during the launching of routine military exercises, Crocodile Smile IV, Egwu Eke IV and Ayem Akpatuma II, said the operation, which is currently taking place in the Northeast, will be extended to other parts of the country.

The COAS said the operation is meant to curtail the movement of bandits, kidnappers, armed robbers, ethnic militia and other criminals.

Buratai, who was represented by Chief of Training and Operations in the Nigerian Army, Maj.-Gen. E. O. Udoh, stressed that the exercises became “necessary owing to the myriad of emergent threats that are burgeoning across the geo-political zones”.

He added: “As part of its constitutional roles, the Nigerian Army, acting in aid of civil authority, is poised to combating these threats.”

It's getting worse !!! The rights of Nigerians to live freely is being heavily breached by this same govt ...The Buhari govt knows who the bandits are , where they stay and has even proposed to build Rugas for them and even sent a whole governor to pay them a visit in their camp but yet today they want ordinary citizens to provide them with ID cards before the can move around freely

Where is the result of the enquiry into the killing of three policemen which was ordered by a military colonel? It will soon become a thing of the past. The kidnapping of the Dapochi students was well planned that at the time of abduction and the return of the girls to soldiers that mounted roadblocks vanished from the duty posts. Who is deceiving who?

I think the military are looking for way to loot public fund. Let Nigeria government give her citizens genuine identification card. Just like what we have in usa this would really reduce insecurity.

This is very bad in all ramifications.
Seems the head of state general Buhari has written off the Nigerian police,civil defense etc.
The military all over d world is not trained for such jobs talk more of the Nigerian army with it's long history of human rights abuse.
Meanwhile, same military has not been able to make a headway in all the conflicts they're involved in.

shocked Profiling all Nigerians? What you need is intel on how criminals/terrorists operate which the govt & security agencies fully know but choose to act otherwise.

Infilterate these criminal elements intelligently otherwise they will also get the IDs yet go unnoticed as they're more smarter than you guys.

This move is an obvious sign of cluelessness about the insecurity challenge these dumbasses have no iota of solution.

Meanwhile, this is a state governor fraternizing with armed fulani terrorists in a forest in Kastina in the name of peace.What the shame of a nation.

Just as the govt looted the $1B counter-insurgency funds without buying any weapon? BH must be technically defeated.Killer Fulani terrorist must be decleared the rightful terrorists that they are and dealth with accordingly.Anything short, Nigeria is still going in circle.

Oh he now needs traditional leaders support to destroy the already technically defeated BH? Abeg where were you when Buhari promised to lead the BH fight from the front? See why sai baba zombiesm is not good?

Meanwhile,guess it's the same traditional leaders like the Shehu of Borno that said "BH is still laying siege on Borno"
https://www.google.com/amp/s/punchng.com/shehu-of-borno-reveals-state-still-under-boko-haram-siege/amp/ or the Emir of Daura that was also complaining of insecurity in his emirate?

Same Buhari that boldly said "A fight against BH is a fight against the north"?

In every sane countries, every citizen over the age of 18 must have atleast a form of identity.

It prevent loads and loads of issues.

The problem in this part of the world is how to make it easy for the citizens to get.

On the same breath, Nigerians will always wait till the dying minute to start registering for their ID's in cases like this.
We've seen that many times prior now.

We go all dey alright las las in this country!

shocked



Nigerian Army under burutai are quite dumb, which section of the constituition mandates me to be walking around with an Identity card? Perhaps if unemployment wasnt at 23% Everyone would have a valid Id card

abi they think this is military regime when they seat in beer parlours and officers mess to formulate wicked laws, and the next day they give the orders and it becomes a decree

The Only reason Identity card are requested overseas is that they have a comprehensive citizens database, they have a functional social seciurity system that captures all citizens, and most importantly The Laws are there mandating people to have Identity card and Social Seciurity numbers from birth

Mumu people in their mind criminals only do crime and nothing else a criminal can be a student, a sars officer, a politician, boko haram boys can even have herdsmen and Arewa youth membership I.d card's.
