DHQ denies plan to overthrow Buhari

—-As DHQ Appoints New Commander for Operation Delta Safe

The attention of the Defence Headquarters has been drawn to an online publications that the military intends to overthrow the civilian administration of President Mohammed Buhari. This report to say the least is not only baseless and misleading but a dream of those who do not wish the nation well. The story which was attributed to some Niger Delta militants was concocted to achieve cheap publicity and a complete propaganda and diversionary.

The entire Nigerian Armed Forces therefore distant itself from this story as it is not only mischievous and baseless but with the intent to heat up the polity and cause public apprehension. The Chief of Defence Staff, General Gabriel Olonisakin wishes to assure our highly respected political leaders and the entire Nigerians that the military will continue to be apolitical and will do everything possible to defend and deepen our democratic governance which is the best, acceptable and legitimate form of government the world over. The Defence Headquarters restates its total subordination to civil authority and upholding the supremacy of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and will continue to defend all democratic structures and will never yield to blackmail and distractions from fifth columnist. Therefore this unfounded story should be discountenance in its entirety.

In dealing with the myriad of security challenges across the country, the military will continue to remain focus and deploy every available resources to reposition our forces to carry out their constitutional roles.

Meanwhile, a new commander for OPERATION DELTA SAFE in Niger Delta has been appointed. He is Rear Admiral Joseph Osa Okojie who until his present appointment was the Flag Officer Commanding Naval Training Command, Lagos. His appointment is with immediate effect.

It will be recalled that OPERATION PULO SHIELD in the Niger Delta was recently scrapped and replaced with OPERATION DELTA SAFE.

    Coups are always rumors until they are confirmed either by the coupist or the government after it has failed. Times are hard we know, that does not mean that soldiers are welcome. Soldiers are not good administrators. They will take us ten steps backward

  4. Abi this ” KAKKY BOYS” dey craze?

  5. millitry should take over overlawness

  6. that would be good millitry should plan it well ple fast track plan well perfect well

  7. DONT EVER DO THAT PLEASE.

  8. There is nothing like khaki boys in this country,they are politicians in uniforms

  9. Na fake news, if say na NDAVENGERS talkam, I go believe die.

  10. coup? not possible again in this country

  11. Pls dont tople him bcos the devil we know is better than the angel . . . .

  12. What will the Military convince us with after launching the coup-detat? After all they do worst than the civilian, most of have been kicked out of for one thing or the other, to hell with their selfish plans, God will never let happen

  13. Hahahaha story story Naija love drama

  14. Better we go military instead of this useless government with no focus

  15. dis one na season film ooo

  16. Even if that is their plan, will they tell you the truth? Those discontented officers among them will not make their plans public.

  17. @ferdinand I don’t think you have eyes.

  18. All they want is buhari to sack service chiefs bcos Igbo no dey among them

  19. Buhari has not been doing well in dis country, so what do u expect. No one fears military coup anymore cos of d hardship and herdsmen killings. He planted evil years ago,no way for escape. No peace for d wicked.

  20. I ‘m in support, let them overthrow him,we are tire of dis democrazy.no peace,no equal position,if Army will take over, it wll be better.

  21. To me this is not a surprise story bcos most of the coup carried out in some countries are mostly based on lack of performance.

  22. Be calm, God is in control!

  23. S’ nigeria have military that able to overthrow civilians govm? Hahahahahahahahaha ok let them show,

  24. Pls act fast fast before we all dies

  25. God will overthrow & take over

  26. a beg military take over better go reach me joor.apc and pdp they re thief.

  27. No coup in nigeria.our govt is incharge.our govt is unoppose

  28. Buhari himself is the one plotting his overthrow. He planned military takeover but this was busted, so they changed tactics. Now the army will leave buhari on seat as a dummy, while they rule the country from the background. For efficiency, they will alter the police structure so as to infiltrate it with bokoharam or military boys who will operate under cover of police but operating like military. So, in case of abuse or criminal undemocratic molestations of individuals, you run to the police ( now military disguise) and they frustrate you or increase your woes. Yet buhari will stand as head but he knows he is just a cover up head. This weaken everybody. Their only trouble now is Biafra and Freedom figthers in old Eastern region.I.e. IPOB, Avengers and project Biafra that will deprive them revenue from oil. Safe this, every right thinking person has seen a coup coming and being hatched. Impeachment is the appropriate thing to do but Osibanjo is not wanted by the north at all. All in all, bye and large, they will try it out but will fail seriously and receive backlash. It will boomerang.

  29. Abeg, millitary Govt is more productive than civilian . During millitary era, so many landmark archievements in Nigeria today was were realised. Let me ask? In the north how many local gvts is in one state in comparism with igbo? All the states created in Nigeria was during Millitary. What has civilian Democracy Don since , apart frm the late yar adua who wud hav put smile on our if not death. So many tragidies have been recorded. MY ADVICE TO THE MILLITARY” take over now before we are all dead. This one is :smiling in tears. Pls do the over throw wothin this mnth. The man thier is incompetent

  30. Get to the root of that publication n arrest those involved

  31. nemesis following d military for many many atrocities
