Nigerian Army Shuts Down Secret Plan To Overthrow Buhari’s Government

Official statement by the Nigerian Army on the rumoured Coup D’Etat Against Buhari..

“The attention of the Nigerian Army has been drawn to another campaign of calumny and distraction by faceless criminal gang of economic saboteurs that hide under the aegis of Joint Niger Delta Liberation Force (JNDLF) alleging that some officers of the Nigerian Army approached them for support to overthrow our duly elected present democratic government.

This is baseless and most unfortunate allegation that existed in the warped minds of the originators of such weighty allegation. The Nigerian Army wish to state that this is not true and hereby distanced itself from this weighty allegation.

We also see this speculation as a dangerous distraction to our effort in fighting insurgency and other criminal elements in the country.The Nigerian Army would like to send a strong and an unequivocal warning to those speculating a coup by the Nigerian Army (NA) against the Government to desist forthwith. We would like state in clear terms that we are a product of democracy and a focused professional institution and would have nothing to do with such abomination and heinous crime.

We wish to state further that the NA is the greatest beneficiary of democracy and therefore cannot ever contemplate any anti-democratic misadventure, certainly not under the command of the present Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Yusufu Buratai. Rather, we see this type of dangerous speculation as a declaration of war to destabilise the present government by these unscrupulous elements.
The Nigerian Army is investigating those behind the dangerous insinuation in order to unravel the real motive behind it.

We would like to reiterate our unalloyed loyalty to the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and defence of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. We would also like to reaffirm our unconditional support and obedience to civil authority.

We wish to further assure Nigerians and indeed all peace loving people that the Nigerian Army and indeed its personnel will never be involved in such terrible misadventure.

We wish to add further that no matter how long it takes, we would track and find out those behind these insinuations and bring them to justice.

You are kindly requested to disseminate this information to the public through your medium.
Thank you for your kind cooperation.

  1. This is a sad story to hear my belief is that if it is true that they are planning this coup d” tat underground, they cannot succeed and (in -sha -allah) they will be cut and regret it whoever have this in mind Round them up do not try them in any law court Silent them they ar enemies of progress, this barbaric people who have this in mind should be executed they not be in the community.

  2. Mr president pls thread softly, its obvious not everyone wants justice to be served, we are too deep in a very very corrupt society, only God can save us now.

  3. in every rumour there is atom of truth,even if its true would(nigerian army)come out boldly and say yes dat was our plan with(JNDLF),even if its true they would still deny it,so buhari u have to b careful weather its true or not.

  4. Oh, he is afraid to be overthrown? Then he should better sit up and readjust, causion his fulani herdsmen brothers most of which are foreigners among us claiming the nationality of this country.

    Buhari‘s govt. is expected to bring a rewarding and soothing change but has brought nothing other than pains, shame and chain.

    I take a stroll…

  5. Mr president history might repeat itself. Obviously ever since we switched over to democracy,we’ve never heard of military planing for coup and that shows something is seriously wrong! Seat right and look where you are still lacking and make necessary adjustment accordingly.
