The Nigerian Army on Thursday, confirmed it is yet to make any arrests following the revelation by the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, of attempts by some politicians to infiltrate the military.
He claimed they had received information that some people had been approaching some soldiers for undisclosed political reasons.
However, responding to questions on whether any officer had been arrested and interrogated, Army spokesperson, Brig. Gen. Sani Usman, said: “We have always been open and transparent with information and if there is anything, we will let the public know.”
Usman also did not give any impression there will be any investigation, beyond the warning handed down to officers and soldiers in the army by the COAS.
Buratai’s warning brought to the fore the spectre of a coup plot, amid concerns arising from President Muhammadu Buhari’s ill health and absence from the country.
