The Presidency has cautioned those it described as “a section of the political class” against misleading the public and inciting protests against the heads of military institutions in the country. The President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, gave the warning in a statement.
The statement explained that a group of politicians and beneficiaries of the Boko Haram insurgency is paying for people to join their planned protest against the country’s service chiefs.
It attributed the various calls by prominent citizens in the country for the sack of the service chiefs over the spate of killings and crimes recorded recently.
Also worried about the security situation, some lawmakers in the Senate and House of Representatives chambers of the National Assembly recently called for the replacement of the service chiefs with those with fresh ideas.
