Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, Chief of Army Staff, on Wednesday noted that the Nigerian Army was professional in its conducts.
This is coming after CNN released an investigative report showing how military officers shot at End SARS protesters at the Lekki toll gate.
Recall that soldiers allegedly shot at armless protesters at the Lekki toll gate an action which has raised questions from Nigerians.
The 81 Division of the Nigerian Army, however, denied killing protesters at Lekki toll gate.
Buratai in his reaction to the report said the Nigerian Army will never operate outside the rules of engagement.
He stated this while receiving members of the House of Representatives committee on Army at the Army headquarters on Wednesday.
According to Buratai: “Let me assure you and all Nigerians that the Nigerian Army is a professional Army. We follow our rules of engagement. Nigerians should feel safe.”
“We abide by rules of engagement and the constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria.”
