The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, has declared that he does not care if a travel ban is issued against him over the recent killings of innocent Nigerians in Lekki.

Some Nigerians had called on the international community to place a visa ban on those responsible for the shooting of peaceful protesters.

The Army boss disclosed this at a conference with army commanders in Abuja on the #EndSARS incident.

Going further, he added that they must remain in the country to make it better, adding that he was already an old man when he first stepped out of the country and does not mind living the rest of his life in Nigeria.
