Nigerian military dismisses bias allegations, reaffirms neutrality

In response to accusations of bias in military operations in Mangu town, Plateau State, the Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has vehemently denied any form of favouritism.

The allegations were made by Rev. Timothy Daluk, Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Mangu, who claimed that soldiers allowed Muslims to burn houses.

Brigadier General Tukur Gusau, Acting Director of Defence Information, addressed the claims in a statement, labeling them as false and lacking any reasonable foundation.

He emphasized that the accusations were an attempt to malign military personnel deployed to address security challenges in the Mangu area.

Providing context to the situation, Brigadier Tukur Gusau explained that on January 23, 2024, a security breach in Mangu led to the Plateau State Government declaring a 24-hour curfew.

Operation SAFE HAVEN troops were reinforced in Mangu to enforce the curfew and control the situation.

The military, according to Brigadier Tukur Gusau, carried out their duties professionally, arresting criminals involved in looting and burning properties while recovering weapons.

Expressing concern over a religious leader spreading falsehoods, Brigadier Tukur Gusau emphasized the military’s neutrality, professionalism, and commitment to its constitutional role of protecting citizens.

He warned against baseless accusations, urging the public to support ongoing military operations to restore peace.

“We strongly caution individuals making malicious comments against the military to cease such acts.

Henceforth, any person found spreading falsehoods will face constitutional redress, regardless of their status in society,” Brigadier Tukur Gusau added.

The military’s stance reaffirms its dedication to maintaining neutrality and professionalism in fulfilling its constitutional responsibilities.
