Chief of Defence Staff, general Gabriel Olonisakin

The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has advised military pensioners to shelve the planned protests billed to hold in Abuja.

A statement signed by the Director Defence Information, Major General John Enenche explained that this is to prevent breakdown of law and order.

“”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 advised 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,” it said.

The statement emphasized that the Defence Headquarters strongly advised the group of military   pensioners   involved   in   this   plan,   to   desist   and   remain   law abiding.

The group was 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,” it added.
