The Nigerian Defence Headquarters has refuted a circulating rumour on social media regarding the Nigerian Armed Forces being asked to carry out a coup d’etat.

Brig. Gen. Tukur Gusau, the Director of Defence Information, stated in a press release on Sunday that the report is both false and unsettling.

He emphasized that the Defense Headquarters is troubled by this misleading social media claim, which suggests that the Armed Forces of Nigeria (AFN) have received a request to instigate a leadership change in the nation.

“We want to use this opportunity to reiterate that the AFN never received nor made such declaration at any time 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 AFN is very comfortable with democracy and remains loyal to the President, Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria His Excellency President Bola Ahmed Tinubu GCFR. 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 lookout for these agents of doom. We must all join hands to strengthen our democracy.”
