2019 Election: We Acted Within Legal Boundary - Army


The Nigerian Army on Saturday said its activities in the just-concluded Presidential and National Assembly polls were within the ambit of the law and rules of engagement.
According to Spokesman of the army, Col. Sagir Musa, “we acted within the requirements of the law, rules of engagement and code of conduct”.
During the elections, there were widespread allegations of partisanship, brutality of soldiers on some electorate and Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) officials, and partisanship in the process.
Electoral officers in some state were said to report interfering of the military men with the election.
But, Musa told News men that the army made its position clear before, during and after the elections.
He pointed out that monitors of the elections had commended the army for its role while the exercise lasted.
“Our position stands on the verdict given by local and foreign election monitors that commended the Nigerian Army for being professional, proactive, responsive and unbiased,” the spokesman said.
