The Chief of Army Staff Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai has warned that the army will not allow subversive and dishonest elements to destabilise the peace and stability of Nigeria.
The Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Col. Sagir Musa, said that Buratai made the remarks during a meeting with Principal Staff Officers, Commanding Officers and field commanders yesterday while briefing newsmen on the outcome of the meeting at a news conference.
Buratai told the Principal Staff Officers, Commanding Officers and field commanders that there will be no room for disloyalty amongst all officers and soldiers of the Nigerian Army.
Buratai stated that the events of the past few days in the country have shown the determination of some unscrupulous individuals and groups to destabilise Nigeria by all means.
The COAS, however, charged commanders to nip in the bud these emerging trends at all cost and directed them to warn their troops on internal security or on guard duties outside the barracks to be at maximum alert at all times and to also deal decisively with any attack on their duty locations.
