The Nigerian Army on Tuesday washed its hands off a report on the planned use of soldiers to remove and eject the Kogi State Chief Judge from his official residence.

“The NA under the leadership of Lieutenant General Tukur Yusuf Buratai will not contemplate interfering under any guise in the internal Executive - Judiciary Conflict in Kogi State or any other state for that matter,” Acting Director of Army Public Relations, Colonel Sagir Musa, said in a statement.

He noted that “the Army Headquarters has already directed and warned the Commander in the State to stay clear of this conflict (not to interfere under any guise).

“As a professional and law abiding organisation, the NA hereby strongly distances itself from Kogi State conflict between the State Executive and the Judiciary.”
