Army: All Machinations Against Buratai Will ail.

The Nigeria army says Tukur Buratai, the chief of army staff, will not be distracted by “evil machinations”, which will “surely fall back” on the bearers. Responding to the call for the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to probe him, Sani Usman, spokesman of the army, described the allegation as “mischief”. He referred to Save the Nation Movement (STNM), which made the claim, as a “faceless” group and called on the public to disregard the message being passed across.
