Soldiers Not Iinvolved In Kano Emirate Tussle – Nigerian Army

Nigerian Army says, it is not involved in enforcing any court order related to the ongoing Kano Emirate tussle.

Director of Army Public Relations, Major General Onyema Nwachukwu, made clarification in a statement on X that the troops are not engaged in the emirate dispute.

He said, the Army has taken proactive measures to prevent any potential breakdown of law and order that might arise from the conflict.

The issue of paramount concern to the Nigerian Army and other security agencies is the prevention of breakdown of law and order in the state, which could be taken advantage of by adversarial non-state actors.

“The military would imminently intervene when it becomes apparent that the intensity of the security situation becomes overwhelming for the police.

“All the Army is doing at this stage is to monitor the situation as it unfolds and be on standby in the event of any escalation that could threaten the security of the state and the region in general,” the statement reads. – DP
