The Nigerian Army, on Wednesday, denied a report alleging that some serving officers are planning to storm Abuja, to protest unpaid emoluments and poor working conditions.

Onyema Nwachukwu, Brigadier General, Director Army Public Relations in a statement described the reports as baseless, unsubstantiated and an attempt by some faceless enemies to dent the image of the military.

He said officers and men of the service witnessed exceptional positive changes in the moral and physical components of the force.

The statement further explained that the Nigerian Army under the current leadership had provided a conductive enablement for officers and men, which has motivated them to work tirelessly with all the logistics equipment that had been injected into the theatres of operations.

He said the army had provided welfare packages, prompt payment of salaries, operational allowances, medical facilities, as well as welfare flights to reduce the burden of troops travelling in and out of the theatres to see their loved ones.

“Scholarships are also being awarded to children of officers and soldiers killed in action in the ongoing operations,” he said.

He said the NA remained a symbol of national unity and cannot afford to be divided along ethnic or religious lines.

 Stop lying B.G. The Nigerian army as been bastardized and infiltrated by Fulani government, you saw what Brutai did. Infact, there is nothing like armed force again in Nigeria, there wings have been caged. The image of military collapsed after the last military president. .All military entitlements seized by former services chiefs for their personal gains. The boys are right to protest, the image and value of military need to be restored in Nigeria, all allowances meant for the including emoluments should be paid. These people  are sacrificing their  lives, why can't we appreciate them. Why are those in the helm of affairs so heartless and wicked. All former services chiefs  from 2015 should be probed with immediate effect. B.G while defending your position don't step on peoples toes, spokesman, speak well.
