The Defence Headquarters wishes to disassociate itself from the pictures of the four armed men dressed in military camouflage doing a 4 by 4 fingers sign connoting a campaign symbol of a political party.
The Armed Forces of Nigeria is apolitical and remains apolitical. The pictures are being investigated to ascertain the true identity of the men in the photograph. If it is found out that they are military personnel, they will be sanctioned according to extant rules and regulations.
