“Stay off election process”, former State Security boss cautions the army about Buhari’s order – Dennis Amachree

February 22, 2019


A former Director of the State Security Service, Dennis Amachree, says the military should stay off the election process in Nigeria.

He said the primary assignment of the military is to protect the territorial integrity of the nation.

President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday stirred the hornet’s nest when he said he had given the military and police instructions to be ruthless with anybody who snatches a ballot box.

Premium Times reported that the Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai, took the cue and warned those planning to disrupt the upcoming election to desist as the army will not tolerate such actions.

“Ballot box snatching is not the major problem but vote buying,” he said.
