DHQ denies reports of coup request

THE Defence Headquarters today strongly denied social media reports that the Armed Forces of Nigeria (AFN) had been approached with a proposal to alter the nation’s government.

In a statement released earlier, the Defence Headquarters emphasized that at no point in time did the AFN receive, entertain, or make any such declaration to any individual or group.

The military expressed alarm over the misinformation, blaming it on detractors seeking to destabilize the country.

The statement strongly established the AFN’s position on the issue, emphasizing its unshakable devotion to democracy.

They informed the public of their devotion to His Excellency President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Furthermore, the military reaffirmed its commitment to upholding the Federal Republic of Nigeria’s constitution.

The Defence Headquarters advised those spreading such false narratives to stop immediately or face legal repercussions, emphasizing that the military, in concert with other security services, is actively monitoring and will respond to any such threats to national stability.

The message was issued by Brigadier General Tukur Gusau, Director of Defence Information, who urged Nigerians to unite in their commitment to strengthening the nation’s democracy.
