Military never received any coup request – DHQ
The Defence Headquarters has described as false and disturbing, report that the Armed Forces of Nigeria (AFN) received a request to effect change of leadership in the country.
This is contained in a statement by the Director of Defence Information, Brig.-Gen. Tukur Gusau, on Sunday in Abuja.
Gusau said that the armed forces never received nor made such a declaration to anyone or any group.
“We believe this statement came from those who do not wish the nation well.
“It is surely the wicked imagination of a few who are not happy with the progress and well-being of our dear country.
“The military is very comfortable with democracy and remains loyal to the President, Commander-In-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Bola Tinubu.
“The military is always willing and ready to defend the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“We urge those peddling such falsehood to desist from such or face the law.
“The Military and indeed other security agencies are on the look out for these agents of doom. We must all all join hands to strengthen our democracy,” he said.
