The defence headquarters on Tuesday dissociated the armed forces of
Nigeria from the circulation of document, calling for the overthrow of

Wabi alleged that the document called for the setting up of an “interim government’’ in place of the elected government.

“The
Armed Forces of Nigeria wishes to dissociate itself from the rascality
and intentions as espoused in a document being circulated by a faceless
group named Nigerian Continuity and Progress calling for support of a
revolution to oust the current democratically elected government and in
its place establish an illegitimate interim government,” the statement
read.

“The AFN outrightly condemns the undemocratic and demonic actions of the author of the document.

“Accordingly,
members of the public are enjoined to discountenance the content of the
documents being circulated by NCP and equally condemned in totality,
the call to derail our hard-earned democracy.”

It said the armed
forces was “very mindful of its constitutional responsibilities’’ and
would not be misled into any act that would undermine democracy as
enshrined in the 1999 Constitution as amended.

“The AFN
remains unflinchingly loyal to the Constitution, as well as President
Muhammadu Buhari and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the
Federal Republic of Nigeria, he said.

Wabi said all relevant law
enforcement agencies had been advised to unravel those behind the
“seditious” document for appropriate actions.
