The Defense HQ has refuted claims suggesting that the Guards Brigade was placed on high alert due to suspicious activities, dispelling concerns of a coup plot in Nigeria. Brigadier General Tukur Gusau, the acting Director of Defence Information, clarified the situation in a statement shared on their official X account on Monday. The statement labeled a recent article by SaharaReporters as malicious and baseless, addressing it as a source of misinformation.

According to the statement, the Defense Headquarters deemed the allegations unfounded, emphasizing that there was no credible evidence to support the notion of heightened alertness within the Guards Brigade. The article’s assertions of emergency meetings involving President Bola Tinubu, the Chief of Staff to the President, and the Commander of the Guards Brigade were dismissed as speculative and without merit. The Defense Headquarters reaffirmed its commitment to transparency and urged the public to disregard such unfounded claims.
