Lieutenant General Taoreed Lagbaja, the Chief of Army Staff, has said that the army does not arbitrarily target people or communities that are not actively fighting or acting in a hostile manner toward the military. He spoke about General TY Danjuma’s allegations that the military was prejudiced in its activities.

He made it clear that the military is dedicated to not discriminating based on religion or ethnicity and that a security breach in Borno State does not suggest that all of its citizens are state enemies.

He disagreed with General Danjuma’s position, saying it does not fairly represent the values and behavior of the Nigerian Army. He restated that the armed forces have always operated in all of the nation’s areas of action with professionalism.

In a Channels TV interview, he stated, ”If General TY Danjuma comes up to accuse the military of taking sides, that is his opinion.”

“I understand that he has expectations, but the truth is that if there is a security infraction in Borno State, it is not everybody in Borno that is an enemy of the state.”

“The Army does not go about asking people what their religion is or which ethnic group they belong to. In carrying out their duty, we do it professionally.”

“You don’t expect us to go into a community and burn it because you have an issue with them.”

“If they are not seen as combatants who are carrying arms openly and they are not engaging the military in any combat, then we treat them as law-abiding citizens because that is what they have presented themselves to be.”

“And if that is the stance of General Danjuma, I think it does not represent what the Nigerian Army stands for. We have conducted ourselves professionally in every theater we have engaged across the country…..Séé Móré
