The Defence Headquarters has warned a group of military pensioners not to embark on a planned protest march tagged “liberation.” The army gave the warning in a release by the Director, Defence Information, Major General John Enenche.
He said: “It is for the information and necessary action of all military pensioners and is equally for the awareness of the general public.’
“In this regard, the group is advices to get legal permit from the police before embarking on such an exercise.
While urging the pensioners involved in the planned protest to desist from it and remain law-abiding, he said the defence headquarters learnt about the ploy yesterday in Abuja.
Enenche urged the pensioners to seek redress through the appropriate organs in the ex-servicemen and armed forces of Nigeria, to forestall any breakdown of law, order and a breach of the peace.
