The elite forces were ambushed during patrol on the Kubwa-Bwari expressway in the Nigerian capital, causing fear and panic among residents.

One of the sources quoted in the report said: “Let me be frank with you: there is just no way you will rule out possible sabotage in what happened to our gallant troops of Guards Brigade extraction.

“Look, they are one of the finest we have in the Armed Forces of Nigeria (AFN), within the context of high-level protection, and neutralisation of planned attacks.”

The president must resign now, allow the VP complete his tenure, conduct elections and hand over. This is national emergency.”
