The Armed Forces of Nigeria (AFN) has dissociated itself from a document being circulated by a group known as Nigerian Continuity and Progress (NCP) calling for support of a revolution to oust the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government and in its place establishes an interim government.

A statement from Navy Captain Muhammed Ahmed Wabi, Deputy Director Defence Information on Tuesday said the AFN outrightly condemns the “undemocratic and demonic actions of the author of the document.”

Wabi said in the statement that, “Accordingly, members of the public are enjoined to discountenance the content of the documents being circulated by NCP and equally condemned in totality, the call to derail our hard earned democracy.

“It should be noted that the AFN is very mindful of its constitutional responsibilities and will not be misled into any act that will undermine democracy as enshrined in the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria1999 as amended.

“The AFN remains unflinchingly loyal to the Constitution, as well as to President Muhammadu Buhari, President, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“Meanwhile, all relevant Law Enforcement Agency have been advised to unravel those behind the seditious document for appropriate actions,” the statement said
