1. A recent comment by one of the elder statesmen  alledging that the military  collude with bandits to kill people and therefore, call on them to rise and defend themselves outside constitutional provisions. This is highly uncalled for and is invitation to anarchy and should be disregarded by  well meaning Nigerians.

2.  The efforts of the  Nigeria Armed Forces towards restoration of peace, security and order in Nigeria  are evidently clear and Nigerians continue to show appreciation for changing the security environment from what it was before.

Therefore, if any one has evidence of wrongdoings or derelation of duty against our troops should please bring forward such evidence through the appropriate channels for necessary action.
