The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has announced plans to invite Reverend Timothy Daluk, the Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Mangu Local Government Area of Plateau State, to discuss his recent accusations against the Nigerian military.
As reported by Punch, Daluk had alleged that the military was complicit in the killings of Christians and the destruction of property in the state.
In response to these serious allegations, Major General Edward Buba, the Director of Defence Media Operations, informed the media on Thursday that the Defence Headquarters is initiating contact with Reverend Daluk to provide additional information and substantiate his claims.
“DHQ is in the process of reaching out to him to come and substantiate the claims. It is not unusual for emotions to cloud people’s judgment when they have been confronted with a very traumatising experience. We would get to the bottom of his allegations after we have an audience with him. All the same, the military will continue to discharge its duties professionally and in line with the best international standards.” He said.
