The Nigerian Military has stated that its not their job to stop Nigerians who wants to agitate across the Country.
Stating this in Owerri, Imo State capital, during an interactive session with retired senior military officers from the South East geo-political zone, Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Lucky Irabor stated that;
“It is not the job of the military to stop anybody who wants to agitate. It’s a political thing, but what we are against is having to use the instruments of violence to bring about such agitations.
“We have a constitution that guarantees us avenues to ventilate any grievance. Why do you have to kill before you achieve your desire?
“So, anyone outside the provisions of the constitution, of course, we as army officers or security agents won’t allow that. It is out of place and we will use anyone who will use instruments of violence to achieve any agenda.”
