Against the backdrop of the circulation of a seditious document calling for a revolution to oust the present administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, the Defence headquarters said last night that the armed forces are not part of the faceless group making such call.
A statement signed by Navy Captain Muhammed Wabi, Drputy Director, Defence Information Information said, “The Armed Forces of Nigeria (AFN) wishes to dissociates itself from the rascality and 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 Nigeria1999 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 Agency have been advised to unravel those behind the seditious document for appropriate actions”
