Army To Make Public Report On Danjuma’s Allegations


THE Army has promised to make public the findings of the panel it set up to investigate the allegations levelled against it by Gen. T.Y. Danjuma.

Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, made the promise on Wednesday when the panel  led by its president, Maj.-Gen. John Nimyel,  submitted its report.

Buratai set up the panel on April 9.

He also received the report of the 17-member Committee on Arms Verification, which he had set up on March 19.

Danjuma, on March 24, at the convocation of Taraba State University in Jalingo, alleged that some troops on internal operation in Taraba collude  with killers and suspected  herdsmen and did not protect residents  against attacks.

“You must rise to protect yourselves from these people; if you depend on the armed forces to protect you, you will all die

“I ask all of you to be on the alert and defend your country, defend your state,” he had admonished.

Danjuma’s call had  ignited mixed reactions across  the country, forcing the army to constitute the panel to get to the root of the allegations.
