General Lucky Irabor, the Nigerian military’s Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), has cleared the Nigerian military of responsibility for the Lekki massacre on October 20, 2020.
Irabor talked to media in Edo on Tuesday in response to the Lagos Judicial Panel’s findings on victims of SARS abuses and other related issues.
The CDS paid a visit to Governor Godwin Obaseki at the Benin Government House as well as military units in the state.
Only the white paper that would be produced as a result of the results, according to Irabor, could corroborate the report’s contents.
He noted that the armed forces are engaged in operations all throughout the nation, including combat against criminals in Edo woods and rivers, and that they should not be underestimated.
The General complained about the release of the report “through a wrong channel (social media)”, adding that the military will fully speak when the technical paper is out.
He said officers and men are committed to constitutional mandates and as such, Nigerians should stop making disparaging remarks regarding the personnel.
“Until I see the full report, I may not be able to say much. But I can assure you that the armed forces of Nigeria are well disciplined and we do not engage in any ignoble acts.
“If Nigerians don’t trust us then we wouldn’t have been doing what we are doing and in any case, it is the armed forces of Nigeria.
“We are not talking about the police, we are talking about the armed forces with emphasis – armed forces, When the armed forces are called out, it is because there is a need.
“We need to understand that the armed forces is there to keep the peace and provide the ambience that will enable every Nigerian to live up to their desires in harmony.”
