Move to Impeach Nyako: Count Us Out – Military
The military authorities yesterday denied any involvement in the ongoing process toward impeaching Governor Nyako, especialy the alleged taking over of the residence of the acting chief judge of Adamawa State.
According to reports, some soldiers have taken over the residence of the acting CJ, Ambrose Mammadi, with a view to intimidating him to facilitate the plot to impeach Governor Nyako and his deputy, Bala Ngillari.
Last week, the acting CJ made the list of the seven-man committee to investigate the governor and his deputy.
However, findings show that there was never a directive from the military authorities asking any soldier to take such a step. But a top military officer accused politicians of trying to blackmail the military over the impeachment matter which he described as “a purely political matter”.
Neither the director of information, Defence Headquarters, Major General Chris Olukolade, nor the spokesman for the army, Brigadier General Olajide Laleye, agreed there was such a directive emanating from Abuja.
Major General Olukolade said, “We are still investigating the story, but let me tell you that I am not aware of any directive from the DHQ asking soldiers to do so. As soon as we get to the root of the matter, I will get back to you.”
That was the same position of Brigadier Laleye who simply said, “We will investigate the matter.”
But speaking under a condition of anonymity, a top military officer cautioned the politicians against bringing in the military into a purely political matter.
“I read the story but if you looked at the whole story, it was sponsored by some politicians who always like drawing the military into a purely political matter. The military has no business in the impeachment process; the position of the constitution is unambiguous about it. Tell those who want to involve the military to stop their unpatriotic agenda; it is not good for the military and the country. If the story is true, any soldier involved would face the consequence because it is purely a political matter,” he said.
