The Federal Government has said that the comment made by former Minister of Defence, TY. Danjuma is a an invitation to anarchy.

The Minister of Defence Masur Dan-Ali said this, adding that such comment by an elder statesman is uncalled for and could lead to anarchy.

Danjuma had called on Nigerians at the maiden convocation of the Taraba State University to defend themselves against marauder herdsmen.

He also alleged the armed forces of colluding with the herdsmen to kill innocent people.

In his swift response Dan-Ali described the statement as the type that could cause anarchy as he urged Nigerians to disregard it.
