On Wednesday, the Nigeria’s Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, revealed those responsible for the unrest in Nigeria.
According to him,some of the defeated politicians in the just concluded general elections are responsible for the
current insecurity in some parts of the country.
Buratai leveled the accusation in Maiduguri when he received the House Committee on Army led by its Chairman, Rep. Remande Shawulu, at the Theatre Command.
“The myriad of security challenges we are facing now in the North West, North Central and other parts of the country, I want to believe and rightly so, is the fall out of the just concluded general elections.
“There are several political interests, politicians in particular not happy with their defeat and therefore, trying to take revenge, sponsoring some these criminal activities.
“There are strong political undertone, strong political influence.
“So, I will use this opportunity to call on the honourable members here to prevail on some of these politicians to look at national interest first before any other political or sectional interest.
“We have some strong evidences but we are still being cautious so that we don’t get it wrong,’’ Buratai said.
The army chief advised those politicians against doing anything to aggravate the security challenges.
