Nigeria military dissociates self from calls to remove Buhari from power

The Defence Headquarters yesterday dissociated itself from a group calling for a revolution to oust President Muhammadu Buhari from power.

It called on all security agencies in the country to immediately go after the people behind faceless group for appropriate legal actions.

A statement signed by the Deputy Director, Defence Information, Navy Captain Muhammad Ahmed Wabi said the Armed Forces of Nigeria remained unflinchingly loyal to President Muhammadu Buhari and the current democratic arrangement.

The statement reads: “The Armed Forces of Nigeria (AFN) wishes to dissociate itself from the rascality and unpatriotic intentions as espoused in a document being circulated by a faceless group named Nigerian Continuity and Progress (NCP) calling for support of a revolution to oust the current democratically elected government and in its place establish an illegitimate interim government.

“The AFN outrightly condemns the undemocratic and demonic actions of the author of the document.

“Accordingly, members of the public are enjoined to discountenance the content of the documents being circulated by NCP and equally condemned in totality, the call to derail our hard earned democracy.

“It should be noted that the AFN is very mindful of its constitutional responsibilities and will not be misled into any act that will undermine democracy as enshrined in the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 as amended.

“The AFN remains unflinchingly loyal to the Constitution, as well as to President Muhammadu Buhari, President, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“Meanwhile, all relevant Law Enforcement Agencies have been advised to unravel those behind the seditious document for appropriate actions.”
