The Nigerian Army panel instituted to investigate alleged misconduct of some its personnel in the 2015 general elections is yet to receive any petition from civilians, the president of the panel, Major General Adeniyi Oyebade has said.
Oyebade who is also the General Officer Commanding (GOC) 1 Division Nigerian Army headquarters, Kaduna, said the panel had invited a number of officers who were deployed in some of the states including Ekiti, Osun, Rivers, Akwa-Ibom and Edo from where many of the allegations emanated.
Speaking with the press on proceedings of the panel yesterday in Kaduna, Major General Adeniyi Oyebade said the invited officers are not suspects but played parts in the elections by providing security.
“We have interrogated them and we are making our analysis but it is still ongoing, it is important for members of the public who were participants in the elections to come forward, we have made adequate arrangements for them
“It is still early in the days of the panel but the most important thing I want to emphasize is that we are yet to get any petition or memorandum from members of the public including Civil Society Organisations (CSOs).
“I want to use this medium to call on them to please avail themselves of this opportunity to make their presentations to them and like I said few days ago, all appearances by members of the public will be treated with utmost respect and dignity, we will take care to ensure that when they come here, they will have no reason to worry about their safety or any issue what so ever,” he said.
