The Commander, 302 Artillery Regiment, Onitsha, Colonel Auwal Fagge, has pledged zero tolerance for kidnapping, armed robbery, bunkering and other criminal tendencies in Anambra.
Fagge made the promise when a delegation from the state council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) paid him a visit in Onitsha
The commander said he had enhanced the vehicular monitoring capabilities of the Nigerian army, to reduce traffic congestions caused by check-points across the state.
He, however, solicited the cooperation and understanding of the media, especially in the area of confirming incidents before reporting them.
Earlier, the state Chairman of the NUJ, Henry Nwasike, gave an assurance that the union would continue to cooperate with the army at all times.
“Our motive is to fraternize with you to continue the relationship existing between the army and the media in the effort to build the nation,” he said.
