The Defence Headquarters has advised military pensioners against embarking on their protest scheduled to hold today 13 September 2017.
Defence Spokesman, Major General John Enenche, said in statement, “The Defence Headquarters has been informed of the planned protest tagged “LIBERATION” by a group of military pensioners, on 13 September 2017, in Abuja. “In this regard, the group is adviced to get the legal permit from the Nigerian Police before embarking on such an exercise. This is to forestall any breakdown of law, order and breach of the peace.”
He added, “Objectively, the Defence Headquarters hereby (advises) the group of military pensioners involved in this plan, to desist and remain law abiding.
“The group is further adjured to explore the available channels of seeking redress through the appropriate organs/establishments of ex-servicemen and Armed Forces of Nigeria.
“This is for the information and necessary action of all military pensioners. It is equally for the awareness of the general public.”
