The Nigerian Army says it remains resolute to ensure peace and stability of the nation, in a statement on Wednesday.
The army stressed that its loyalty and commitment is to President Muhammadu Buhari and the constitution of Nigeria.
Although the army did not make direct reference to the #EndSARS protesters, its statement insinuated that it was referring to protesters who have blocked major roads and public utilities.
“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,” a statement by Colonel Sagir Musa, acting director army public relations said.
“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 hereby warns all subversive elements and trouble makers to desist from such acts as it remains highly committed to defend the country and her democracy at all cost.
“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.”
