Another retired General, Theophilus Danjuma on Tuesday claimed there was plot to rig next month’s general elections.
The alarm is coming three days after his former boss, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo made the same allegation.
The former Minister of Defencee said while inaugurating a medical laboratory at the Rufkatu Danjuma Maternity Hospital in his Takum hometown in Taraba State, that the plot was make some states ungovernable to create room for rigging.
He said the unrest would make some states ungovernable in order to manipulate the elections.
The former Chief of Army Staff also described democracy in the country as primitive.
Danjuma warned the people of Taraba to protect their votes to prevent electoral fraud.
“We must work hard for peace in addition to just registering and obtaining our Permanent Voter Cards.
“There is no need to fight one another because they will use the police and soldiers to destabilise us and rig the elections.
“It is in our best interest to ensure there is peace. Those behind this plot know that they will not win elections if there is peace. I want to call on you not to sell your votes because you will be selling your birthright if you do so,” he said.
