The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr. Yakubu Dogara, on Monday raised the alarm over the deployment of military personnel in over 28 states in the country.
Dogara said the development was an indication that Nigeria was already in a state of emergency in peacetime.
The Speaker expressed shock over the growing trend of soldiers taking over civil and security duties constitutionally reserved for the Nigeria Police.
According to him, in peacetime, soldiers are merely to complement the police and other civil authorities.
