The Director of Army Public Relations, Brig. Gen. Sani Usman has said the military is yet to make any arrests in connection with the alleged plot by some soldiers to launch a coup.
The Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Tukur Buratai had raised the alarm that some politicians were approaching some soldiers for undisclosed political reasons earlier in the week
However, two days after the alarm was raised, the Nigerian Army has said it was yet to arrest any persons or group of persons in connection with the alleged plot.
According to Guardian, Brig. Usman wrote in a text message that “We have always been open and transparent with information. If there is anything, we will let members of the public know.”
He therefore, warned Army personnel to steer clear of politics, adding that those interested in politics should resign and pursue their ambition.
