Buhari’s alleged nocturnal meeting with INEC boss, Buratai :Army writes police for immediate arrest, prosecution of Timi Frank
By Steve Oko
The Nigerian Army says it has reported former Spokesman of the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, and a die-hard critic of President Muhammadu Buhari, Mr Timi Frank, to the police for immediate arrest and prosecution accusing him of spreading fake news against the army high command.
Wawa News Global reports that Frank had raised an alarm over an alleged nocturnal meeting Buhari reportedly held with the Chief of Army Staff, COAS, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai; and the National Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Professor Manhood Yakubu.
But the Army in a statement on Sunday, by its Director, Public Relations, Colonel, ALIYU YUSUF, denied the allegation and dismissed it as fake news.
The Army further described the allegation as a concocted hogwash, and warned mischief makers to desist from spreading fake news or face the consequences.
According to the statement, the Army claimed that Frank’s alleged statements were baseless and “targeted against the person of Buratai.”
The statement however, said that “Buhari is at liberty to hold meeting with his Service Chiefs any time.”
It therefore warned politicians against dragging the military into politics for cheap propaganda.
The statement read in part :“The Nigerian Army is an apolitical institution and would continue to remain so while carrying out her constitutional responsibilities.
“We have reported the said Mr Timi Frank to the Nigerian Police Force for his immediate arrest and prosecution for fake news and related offences against the leadership of the Army”.
