Nigeria’s Defence Minister warns military officers against coup

Minister of Defence, Brig.-Gen. Mansur Dan-Ali (rtd) has warned military officers against disloyalty, disobedience and insubordination to the Nigerian government.

He gave the warning on Saturday during the passing out parade of officers’ cadet of Direct Short Service course at the Nigerian Army School of Infantry, Jaji, Kaduna.

Dan-Ali warned that any personnel caught with disloyalty and similar offences would be decisively dealt with accordingly.

“I wish to make it clear that the armed forces of Nigeria are also undergoing a period of self appraisal; there is zero tolerance for indiscipline and unprofessional conduct”, he said.

Dan-Ali noted that the passing out of another set of officers would consolidate on the gains of counter

“The Nigerian Armed Forces, as you are aware, have been involved in an extensive combat against insurgency and terrorist groups.

“It is the responsibility of every one to play in the consolidation of on-going success and post-conflict situation”.

The minister lauded the success of the armed forces in various operations, especially in the north eastern part of the country.
