Nigeria’s Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai, has reacted to calls by International bodies calling for a travel ban to be placed on some military officers accused of human rights abuses in the country.
Buratai responded to these calls during a meeting with Army Commanders in Abuja today October 26, where they deliberated on the End SARS protest and violent incidents across the country.
Buratai lampooned those ‘criminal elements’ clamoring for a ban on top personnel and soldiers over rights abuses and declared that he does not mind living the rest of his life in Nigeria.
The Cable quoted him saying ;
“Criminal elements are threatening us with travel ban but we are not worried because we must remain in this country to make it better. The first time I travelled outside of this country, I was already 50 years and a General, so I don’t mind if I live the rest of my life here”
