He said: ''As you must have been aware, there has been outcry about the roles being played by the foreign observers accredited by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

''Specifically, the United Kingdom (UK) has been abusing this accreditation to foment trouble with a view to causing insurrection against the federal government.

''The UK is being supported in this evil enterprise by the United States (US) and also backed up by the European Union. Some of these agents that have been planted in the opposition have handlers in the UK, US and EU high commission and embassies.

"The chatters between the two sides have been picked up, analyzed and confirmed to be aimed at causing widespread crisis in Nigeria.

"We now have intelligence of the boasts by some of these elements that the EU, US and UK are fully in support of their plan to install a non-democratically elected government in Nigeria.

"They assert that they are aware that what they are about to do amounts to treason but that they can never be held accountable for as long as they have the backing of the aforementioned countries."

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that General Gabriel Olonisakin, the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), on Thursday, February 14, cautioned against illegal use of military uniforms and firearms to scuttle the 2019 general elections.

Olonisakin made this known after a meeting with other Service Chiefs and Heads of Security agencies at the Defence Headquarters (DHQ) in Abuja.

He said: "We are not unaware of plans to illegally use uniforms of military/paramilitary agencies to impersonate security and law enforcement agencies; illegal possession and use of firearms to intimidate and harass members of the public; and other acts likely to cause security breaches."
