Reaction from the Nigerian Army to Rumors of a Coup Against the Tinubu Government

Posted by

Allegations of a potential coup against the administration of President Bola Tinubu are “fake news,” according to the Nigerian Army.

The Nigerian presidential guards were reportedly put on “high alert” on Sunday due to coup plot allegations, according to reports (not in 460PLAY).

Col. Adebisi Onasanya, commander of the Presidential Guards Brigade, met with Tinubu and Femi Gbajabiamila, chief of staff, according to the source. As a result, important brigades were reportedly under observation.

But the Nigerian Army used one of those stories and wrote “FAKE NEWS” on their official X page.

The current economic difficulties, growing inflation, and high cost of living in Nigeria have contributed to the tensions in the country. These issues stem from President Tinubu’s decisions to remove the fuel subsidy and to float the currency.

General Christopher Musa, chief of defense staff, issued a stern warning last week, urging the public to avoid insinuating a coup d’├ętat.
