UPDATE ON THE CLOSURE OF BANEX PLAZA, ABUJA

The Nigerian Army wishes to provide latest update on the recent unfortunate event involving an unprovoked attack by unidentified hoodlums on Nigerian Army personnel at Banex Plaza, Wuse, Abuja, which occurred on Saturday 18 May 2024, leading to the closure of the Plaza on Sunday 19 May 2024.

In response to this incident, a high-level meeting was convened in the Office of the National Security Adviser including the Principal General Staff Officer to the NSA, Commissioner of Police FCT, the FCT Director of the Department of State Services, the Leadership and Management of Banex Plaza, a Representative from the Directorate of Abuja Environmental Protection Board, and the National Chairman of the Mobile Phone Traders Association. The primary objective of this meeting was to identify and apprehend the perpetrators and ensure the continued security of the Federal Capital Territory.

The following resolutions were agreed upon:
a. Immediate reopening of Banex Plaza: Banex Plaza will be reopened immediately to the public.

b. Closure of Shop C93: The leadership of Banex Plaza is instructed to lock up Shop C93 with immediate effect.

c. Arrest of Perpetrators: The owners of the shop who orchestrated the mob attack on the soldiers are to be arrested and handed over to the Nigerian Police.

d. Vigilance by Market Leaders: Market leaders are to remain vigilant and report any remaining perpetrators to the authorities.

Furthermore, the two individuals already arrested have been handed over to the headquarters of the Nigerian Army Corps of Military Police for further action.

The Nigerian Army will also thoroughly investigate the circumstances surrounding the presence of its personnel at the plaza and the subsequent attack.

It must be reiterated that acts of violence against military personnel are not only condemnable but also pose a significant threat to national security and public order. We therefore urge members of the public to exercise caution and restraint when interacting with military personnel and other security operatives, especially when they are in uniform. There are established channels for reporting grievances or misconduct by personnel to the appropriate authorities. It is imperative that these channels are utilized to maintain order and respect for those who serve and protect our nation.

The Nigerian Army remains committed to ensuring the safety and security of all citizens and will continue to work diligently to prevent such incidents in the future.

1.
The report says the attack on the soldier was unprovoked. Please, what caused the attack? Prove that it was unprovoked.

2.
The report calls for the closure of a shop and for the arrest of the shop owner. No wahala. But what about the woman that was allegedly slapped by soldiers? No justice for her or was she not assaulted?

3.
Is the military police supposed to arrest and or detain a civilian?

I drove passed banned junction today heading to area11 and I didn't even notice anything.


But we keep shut about things like this alot in Nigeria. The military are not constituted to have direct power on civilians but to the government.

Whatever act was taken against the officer, giving the police a chance to investigate properly and by now those culprits would've been arrested.

...which person in his right senses publicly attacks a uniform person and expects applause.... irrespective of their short comings atimes, they actually deserve our gratitude for their numerous sacrifices for the peace and freedom we enjoy as citizens...... If you're in doubt of their contributions visit a war torn country, you'll appreciate their efforts more

I still cannot wrap my head around people beating up security personnel in uniform.

What if he brought out a gun in and gunned someone down in self defence? Would it not have spread like wildfire of how trigger happy military men kill defenseless citizens and go scot free?? undecided

The Nigerian army keeps making the wrong news headlines thereby giving itself a negative image, no wonder they can't meet their recruitment targets as most youths wouldn't want to be associated with them.

How I wish this guys acted this way when one of their officers was killed in Borno by BH instead grown men were seen on video crying like babies... No threats to BH, no issuance of statements like this.


Again, two months ago in Niger State, soldiers were seen retreating after stepping on a landmine...there was no statements or threats against the perpetrators.


NA, Make una dey do well o

Soldiers should switch off their baracks gra gra when they are among civilians (partly why I advice soldiers to rent off baracks if they have family because they brutalize each other anyhow, that is not normal life).

Are they cowards? I don't think so. What was the military doing in a civilian environment? Most of you don't use your head to understand that actions comes with reactions. What was the action that caused the reaction no one wants to talk about that.
