Rumors about the alleged coup de’tat against the Nigerian President Bola Tinubu, by some elements in the Nigerian military have been filtering into media space in the evening hours of Sunday February 25, 2024..



Most Nigerian conventional media are reporting that the Presidential Guard Brigades have been placed on high alert to thwart coup attempts due a suspensions movement of unusual armoured corps, while the Presidency have initiated an emergency meeting with top officials of the Nigerian millitary to discuss potential consequences of the threat.

According to Sahara Reporters, the commander of the Presidential Guard Brigades, Col Adebisi Onasanya, the president and his chief of staff, Femi Gbajabiamila are in a serious high-level meeting with Ahmed Tinubu, and the results of such meeting might likely be made public in the coming hours.

Recall that lately, Nigeria have experienced a heightened level of dissension and protests by the civilian population, precisely in the Western and northern regions of the country over economic hardship, high cost of living and insecurity.

This could be serve as ‘legitimate” reasons for such an event. However, other political incentives and factors cannot be ruled out. Given the squabble that has subsisted between the North and the 8-months old Tinubu’s Presidency, there is a likelihood of a conspiracy, but the success of the coup remains in dim-sight as there is an ostensive possibility that the coup would have been foiled by the Presidency and his team of loyal armed forces.
