Probe of Service Chiefs Unpatriotic – Lai Mohammed
Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has described the calls for the International Criminal Court to probe the immediate past Service Chiefs as unpatriotic.
The Minister who stated this during Radio Nigeria Programme, Politics Nationwide” said those calling for probe of the former service chiefs did not have the competence to talk on military structure and formations whether in the North-East or in any other parts of the country.
He noted that the Ex- Service Chiefs obeyed the rules of engagement and where there were infractions, there are internal regulations and internal mechanisms to address them.
The minister assured the people that the new service chiefs have hit the ground running and would ensure Nigeria overcome the insurgency war in the North-East and in other parts of the country.
President Muhammadu Buhari last week announced new leadership for the nation’s military after the former occupants stayed for five years at the helm of affairs.
