The Nigerian army has warned that it will not stand and watch ‘subversive elements and trouble makers’ disrupt activities in the country.
The warning from the army is coming amidst several #ENDSARS protests being held across different cities in the country.
The Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Gen. Sagir Musa, stated this in a press statement on Wednesday.
While reaffirming it’s unalloyed loyalty and commitment to President Mohammadu Buhari and the Nigerian Constitution, it said officers have been directed to deal decisively with anti democratic elements, in order to ensure that law and order is maintained.
The army statement further reassured law abiding Nigerians of its commitment for the defence of democracy and peace in the country.
“The Nigerian Army (NA) wishes to reassure law abiding citizens that it is highly committed to the sustenance of peace, security and defence of democracy in Nigeria. As a responsible and law abiding organisation, the NA reaffirms its unalloyed loyalty and commitment to the President, Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria President Muhammadu Buhari and the Constitution of the Country.
“The NA hereby warns all subversive elements and trouble makers to desist from such acts as it remains highly committed to defend the country and her democracy at all cost. The NA is ready to fully support the civil authority in whatever capacity to maintain law and order and deal with any situation decisively. All officers and men are directed never to be distracted by anti democratic forces and agents of disunity,” the statement explained.
