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.
