The Acting Director, Defence Media Operations, Defence Headquarters, Abuja, Brigadier General Bernard Onyeuko has warned politicians and officers against military coups in Nigeria.
The warning is coming on the heels of what the military described as a “misleading publication” by an online newspaper, “Naija News House” on Nigeria military warning politicians and officers against a Coup which is credited to Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu- the Army Spokesman.
This is contained in a statement obtained by NAIJA LIVE TV and signed by Brigadier General Onyeuko on Sunday.
According to the statement, “The attention of the Defence Headquarters has been drawn to a misleading publication by an online newspaper, Naija News House on Nigeria military warning politicians and officers against a Coup which is credited to Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu- the Army Spokesman.
“The publication is a handiwork of mischief makers and enemies of the state. It is a deliberate and calculated attempt to mislead the general public aimed at causing disharmony in the polity.
“The online newspaper manipulated with the intent of disinformation a previous message released in May 2021 by the then Director Defence Information who is the current Army spokesperson. It is a malicious attempt to bring the military to disrepute. It is obvious that the online newspaper has its own sinister intention to cause confusion.
“The Military High Command hereby warns all mischief-makers and their proxies not to draw the military into their engagements.”
The Armed Forces of Nigeria further reiterated its resolve to remain apolitical and would not hesitate to deal decisively with any person or group of persons that want to tarnish its image or draw it into partisan politics.
“The Armed Forces of Nigeria remains loyal to President Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces -President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR and also sworn to defend our democracy as well the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
