2023 Elections: Defence Chief, Gen. Irabor Warns Politicians Against Violence
By Alabidun Shuaib Abdulrahman
The Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) General Lucky Irabor, has warned politicians and their supporters who are planning to cause trouble during the 2023 general elections to desist.
General Irabor gave the warning while addressing newsmen during the Defence Headquarters bi-weekly news briefing today in Abuja.
He said that considering the fact that some individuals do not usually desire peaceful elections, the armed forces would give the necessary support to the civil authority to ensure peaceful elections.
The CDS advised those eying positions and appointments after elections to see themselves as men and women that conducted ourselves peacefully.
Gen. Irabor, however, called on journalists and the public to continue to support the military and other security agencies in the quest to return peace to trouble spots in the country.
He urged the media to continue to educate Nigerians on the need to trust the military with actionable information in dealing with security challenges as issues of insecurity did not only rest with the military and other security agencies.
