Nigerian Army denies involvement in the demolition of APC Factional secretariat in Kaduna

The Nigerian Army has denied media reports that it participated in the demolition of the APC factional secretariat in Zaria, Kaduna state yesterday February 20th.

Residents in the community claimed that some Army officers escorted the bulldozer that demolished the building in the early hours of yesterday.
The Nigerian Army in a statement released on their website, say none of their officers was involved in the demolition. Read the statement below
The attention of the 1 Division Nigerian Army has been drawn to a Twitter message, report in mass and social media of alleged involvement of military personnel in the demolition of a politician’s property by KASUPDA in Kaduna, Kaduna State.This is not true. No Nigerian Army soldier was involved in the exercise.The allegation and the attempt to drag the Nigerian Army into the issue of demolition is yet another baseless and unsubstantiated claim to malign the hardworking, loyal and professional officers and soldiers of 1 Division Nigerian Army and discredit them. Contrary to claims, the troops of 1 Division have not been involved in any illegal activity of either harassment of politicians or demolition of their properties in Kaduna and its environs. Therefore this claim remains the highest mischief and misleading and it is viewed as another calculated attempt to distract our troops from performing their professional duties. Therefore, the public should disregard such false allegation. The troops of 1 Division Nigerian Army will continue to remain apolitical and non-partisan in the discharge of their constitutional roles. Presently our troops are dutifully engage in EXERCISE AYEM AKPATUMA (CAT RACE) in Niger and Kaduna states, combating Kidnappings, Cattle rustling, armed banditry and Terrorism. Please disseminate this information to the general public through your medium. Thank you for your cooperation. Colonel Muhammad Dole Deputy Director Army Public Relations 1 Division Nigerian Army
