Metro 'No Plans to Stage a Coup d’ etat in Nigeria'- Military Denies Coup Plot



Nigeria's chief of defence staff, Alex Badeh has discredited rumours which claimed that the Nigerian military may stage a coup d'etat.

Badeh claims that the military will do everything possible to defend the democracy of Nigeria. Addressing Mike Omeri, Director-General of the National Orientation Agency, during a brief visit, Badeh said, "Rumours in some quarters of a possible coup d’état in the country are unfounded".

"Why should anyone be thinking in the negative fashion? Tell them we will not do it. Those spreading rumours of coups must be living elsewhere and not in Nigeria.

"The Armed Forces are defenders of democracy. We are an arm of democracy, so how can an arm of democracy work against the democracy that we are part of?", Badeh said.

Hmmm. Let us pray this is true. Coups are always started by politicians hungry for power as they feel they are smarter than the armed forces. But power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Then they will become exiles giving interviews to cnn, bbc, abc etc
