EndSARS Protests: Nigerian Army Releases Statement by sarrki(m): 11:46pm On Oct 14
PRESS RELEASE

NIGERIAN ARMY REMAINS RESOLUTE TO THE PEACE AND STABILITY OF THE NATION

1. 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. 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.

2. 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.

Why won't the army stay calm to defuse the situation with tact instead of making provocative statement in the heat of a looming crisis?

Southern masses have been provoked for too long and any small spark can set many things ablaze. The army has never issued any guidelines in the north east upon all the casualties they keep getting, it's in the south they will be acting superman.

People as it seems now are really ready to die...If NA gets involved then I see collateral damage and it will put us on the map of international arson and destruction list. Let’s thread with caution.

This is the kind of anti people press releases that makes r he masses feel that the authorities are constituted against them.
There's nothing antipeople in this press release. Put yourself in the position of the head of the Nigerian Army. Would you fold your hands while hoodlums are running rampant? The press release doesn't say they are going to stop the protests, they're only warning "subversive elements and trouble makers" to beware.

The onus is now on the organizers of the protests to ensure that their activities remain peaceful.

Subtle threat. What is the purpose of this press release? The Army shouldn't be issuing any press releases when there are people elected to deal directly with the people.
Any acts of violence against the people will only achieve the result they are trying to avoid.
They never issue press releases when Nigerians are being brutalized, only when they think the establishment is being threatened.

I wonder who gives advices these people.
What we have currently in Nigeria is still a civil issue and does not require the armed forces.
Besides, the soldiers that are going to be used to stop us are still part of the people we are fighting for.

The press release is simply warning those using the protest to cause trouble to desist from such act.

While those on peaceful protest can go ahead.

Look at how some illitrates are seeing this press release as a threat.

Trully Nigerians are there own problem.

My thoughts exactly. I've been denied access to my means of livelihood for about a week now by the road blockades. It is their rights to protest. It is also my right to have access to a public road. It is an infringement on my rights to be denied road access. Protesters should converge on one side, while others who wish to go about their lawful duties can go about their activities.

This horrible statement by the Nigerian Army should be shouted down by every living person in the South. The Nigerian Army is constituted to protect the people NOT to be used against the people by a ffcking Ethnic Fulani government that we have in Nigeria.

This people are really crazy!!!!!

This should be the list issue that I think to bothering Nigerian Army why forming. The problem we have in this country are some organizations that don't know their right.
Nigerian army was basically established to focuse on internal and external attacks... Nigerian army as an organization has failed in their responsibility to safeguard the promises they made during their intake.

The worst they can do now is to shoot down one protester and the monster in the people will be unreached on them. Remember You cannever know the strength of the masses untill you provoke them beyond control. I bet them to try any nonsense and see the other side of Nigerians. At this point dying is no longer a threat to Nigeria Youth who have long been brutalised but before we go down the Soul of Nigeria will breed. Let them try Nonsense we are waiting.
