The Armed Forces of Nigeria (AFN) have expressed dismay over some violence-related protests across the country.

The AFN frowned at the increasing number of attacks on peaceful protesters by thugs and miscreants, warning that the unfolding event against peace-loving Nigerians will not be condoned. A statement to journalists from the coordinator, Defence Media Operations in the Defence Headquarters, Major-General John Enenche, warned that no one should attack peaceful protesters.

Part of the statement read:

“Thugs and miscreants are hereby warned to desist from engaging in violent activities against peaceful Nigerians henceforth or face appropriate measures.

“The Military High Command duly encourages peaceful citizens to go about their normal activities without fear of intimidation or harassment as the Armed Forces of Nigeria and other security agencies are on ground for their safety.

“In clear terms, any attempt to undermine the democracy of our beloved nation under any cover will not be allowed. For emphasis, the Armed Forces of Nigeria remains subordinated to the civil authorities of the country with unflinching loyalty to the President Commander in Chief.”
