General Christopher Musa, the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), has issued a warning to those he referred to as “evil people” who are pushing for a coup in Nigeria as a result of the nation’s current economic difficulties.

Musa issued a dire warning to anyone advocating for a coup in the nation due to the existing state of the economy: legal action will follow.

He gave a speech after opening the 6 Division, Nigerian Army and Officers Transit Accommodation main entrance at the Division Headquarters in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

The Army chief gave his word that the Armed Forces will support Nigerian democracy.

Musa said: “Whoever is making that call (coup) does not love Nigeria. We want to make it very clear that the Armed Forces of Nigeria are here to protect democracy.

“We all want democracy and we do better under democracy. And so we will continue to support democracy. And any of those ones that are calling for anything other than democracy are evil people and I think they don’t mean well for Nigeria.

“And they should be very careful because the law will come after them. We can see that with democracy a lot of things are happening in Nigeria. Yes we are going through trying periods, I mean in life nothing is hundred per cent.”

Musa urged Nigerians to be patient, saying the Federal Government is committed to resolving the nation’s present economic issues.

“Everybody goes through a trying period in life, and it is what you do with them. You can see the government putting efforts to ensure that we come out better.

“And it is when you go through difficulties and come out better you will really appreciate what it is to build a nation.

“And so we are going through our trying period, but I can assure Nigerians that it will get better,” he added.
