General Christopher Musa, the Chief of Defense Staff, discussed the country’s efforts to manage the growing wave of insecurity in an interview with Daily Trust. He also discussed other significant topics, such as the welfare of soldiers.
Speaking on the intermittent issue in the Mangu Local Government Area of Plateau State, where both settlers and indigenous people have accused the Nigerian Army of showing prejudice, General Musa stated that it is fortunate that the accusations came from these two groups.
He said, “Well, if both sides are accusing the army, it means they have been neutral. It would have been worse if one side was saying the army was on its side.”
