As per reports culled from a reliable source.. The Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen
Tukur Buratai, has ordered the immediate withdrawal of military escorts for retired army generals and others during the elections, including former President Olusegun Obasanjo and ex-Military leader Ibrahim Babangida.
The Army Chief also said that there will be no
military escorts for politicians even as the army has been mandated to ensure that there is restriction of movement. In his statement, he ordered the military commanders to ensure that anyone caught doing anything inimical during the elections should be dealt with decisively.
