Nigerian Army has restated its commitment to defend the country and her democracy at all cost, saying that its officers and men are directed never to be distracted by anti-democratic forces and agents of disunity.
The Acting Director Army Public Relations, Colonel Sagir Musa, made this known while reacting to the ongoing mass action against the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS.
The statement said: “The Nigerian Army (NA) wishes to reassure law-abiding citizens that it is highly committed to the sustenance of peace, security and defence of democracy in Nigeria.
“As a responsible and law-abiding organisation, the NA reaffirms its unalloyed loyalty and commitment to the President, Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria President Muhammadu Buhari and the Constitution of the Country.”
The NA, therefore, warned all subversive elements and trouble makers to desist from such acts, saying: “The NA is ready to fully support the civil authority in whatever capacity to maintain law and order and deal with any situation decisively.
“All officers and men are directed never to be distracted by anti-democratic forces and agents of disunity.”
