Musa, during the maiden parley with journalists in Abuja on Friday, December 15, also alleged that some individuals and countries were sponsoring Simon Ekpa to destabilise the country, especially the southeast region.

The CDS has however cautioned the citizens against demoralising the troops from effectively discharging their constitutional duties with their actions, Sahara Reporters confirmed.

Musa further urged Nigerians to desist from such acts, adding that the military would not relax in its effort to ensure that peace returned to the South-East.

He added:
