Theophilus Danjuma, a former Minister of Defence, says there are plans to rig next month’s general election.
Danjuma made the allegation on Tuesday while inaugurating a medical laboratory at the Rufkatu Danjuma Maternity Hospital in his Takum hometown in Taraba State.
He accused some politicians of planning to cause unrest, so as to manipulate elections in the state.
He urged residents of Taraba State “to protect their votes to prevent electoral fraud”.
The former Chief of Army Staff also described democracy in the country as primitive.
The retired general said: "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."
