The Department of State Services (DSS) has invited a spokesperson for the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council, Femi Fani-Kayode over allegations of a coup plot ahead of the February election.
Recall that FFK, a former Minister of Aviation had claimed that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate and top military generals had a secret meeting last week.
Fani-Kayode confirmed the invitation by the DSS in a statement on Monday, stating that he would be honoring the invitation this morning, Monday, February 13, 2023.
He added that the meeting may be part of an agenda to provoke a coup d’etat and establish a new and unconstitutional order in the country.
In a statement on Saturday, February 12, 2023, the Acting Director of Defence Information, Brig.-Gen. Tukur Gusau, advised Nigerians to disregard Fani Kayode’s tweets, stressing the Armed Forces’ loyalty to the constitution.
He said: “It needs to be stated that the Armed Forces of Nigeria is a professional military that is loyal to the Constitution of the Federal Republic and will never be part of any evil plot against our democracy. Besides, the military remains apolitical and neutral in the current political process and will not engage in the alleged shenanigans.
“The Armed Forces of Nigeria will never be part of any ignoble plot to truncate our hard-earned democracy.”
