SECURITY CLAMPDOWN AS REPUBLIC OF NBUTO PREPARES FOR INDPENDENCE DAY CELEBRATION
A spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has confirmed that a Code Merde security clampdown is in force in the border zone with Zumata, following anti government demonstrations by pro-Zumatan factions in the disputed Batufu Corridor district.
Despite these protests, Nbuto Independence Day celebrations are scheduled for Tuesday 18th in the national capital of Nbutoville.
Units of F.A.R.T. have been preparing a full scale military parade to be held in honour of President Crossaint, who will be reviewing a ceremonial guard of the elite Force Action Rapide Territoriale mobile para commandos.
Widespread rumours of Zumatan - Lumatan linked insurgent forces infiltrating the border zone have been vehemently denied by the Nbuto Minister for Border Security, Colonel Maginot.
In a statement released earlier this evening, Col Maginot re-assured the people of Nbuto that the border defences remained secure against any possible pre-emptive strike from neighbouring Zumatan territory.
