Nigerian Army Hotlines: How to report electoral violence in your state to the Nigerian Army
The Nigerian Army has emphasized that it will not tolerate any acts of violence or electoral malpractice during the 2023 general election and has released the Nigerian Army hotlines for all the 36 states.
The Army’s Chief of Policy and Plans, Lieutenant General Lamidi Adeosun, made this clear in a statement, saying that troops have been directed to enforce the law, and deal decisively with anyone or group of persons that attempt to disrupt the electoral process.
In order to ensure a peaceful and successful election, the Nigerian Army has provided hotlines for each of the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory, which citizens can use to report any suspicious activity or incidents of violence. This is in line with the Army’s commitment to support civil authorities and work in synergy with the Nigeria Police to protect lives and property during the elections.
The Army has also produced and circulated Codes of Conduct and Rules of Engagement for Operation Safe Conduct to its formations and units. This is to ensure that troops operate within the provisions of the codes and rules, and provide guidance to ensure that their actions do not violate the rights of citizens.
Members of the public are encouraged to report any suspicious acts or acts of violence by calling the phone numbers provided in their respective states. The full list of hotlines for each state is available below.
