Criminal minds are threatening Army with travel ban. I don?t mind living in Nigeria ? COAS, Tukur Buratai says

 

Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai, has reacted to calls by International bodies calling for a travel ban to be placed on some military officers accused of human rights abuses in Nigeria.

The Army chief had a meeting with Army Commanders in Abuja today October 26, where they deliberated on the End SARS protest and violent incidents across the country.

Buratai attacked the international organizations clamouring for a ban on top personnel and soldiers over rights abuses. According to him, his first trip outside Nigeria was when he was 50 and that he doesn’t mind if he has to live in Nigeria for the rest of his life.

“Criminal elements are threatening us with travel ban but we are not worried because we must remain in this country to make it better. The first time I travelled outside of this country, I was already 50 years and a General, so I don’t mind if I live the rest of my life here”The Cable quoted him as saying.

At the meeting, the Army chief said recent events across the country have shown the determination of unscrupulous individuals and groups to cause chaos by all means.

These acts led to the imposition of curfew in several states of the federation.

Despite all these, the army has continued to exercise restraint  applied all the principles of internal security operations and fully abided by the internationally recognised rules of engagement as contained in our published standard operating procedures for internal security operations which are derived from the International human rights laws and are in accordance with the international principles guiding the use of force.”he said
