The Nigerian Army has instituted a legal action against the online publication, Premium Times,
over its failure to retract and apologize over what it called “false, subversive and malicious publications” against the person of the chief of Army staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai and the Nigerian Army.
According to the director, Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Sanni Usman, all efforts to make the medium make amend proved abortive.
The Nigerian Army had sent a letter to the management of the online publishers to retract and apologize before December 31, 2016, of which the medium failed to comply.
However, the Nigerian Army has briefed its lawyers to institute a legal action against the medium.
