President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday, November 15, called for calm, peace and respect for the constitution in Zimbabwe.

He said: “Every attempt must be made to resolve all contentious issues by constitutional means in Zimbabwe to save the country from avoidable political instability.

The appeal by the Nigerian leader came in the wake of reported “military takeover” as a result of rising political tension in the southern African country sequel to President Robert Mugabe’s recent removal of former Vice-President, Emmerson Mnangagwa.

This led to the threat by the head of the Armed Forces of Zimbabwe, Gen. Constantino Chiwenga, that “the military will not hesitate to step in” when the issue had to do with protecting the “revolution.”

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe and his wife were reportedly detained by the military in a 'bloodless transition' of power and the country's deposed vice-president returned from exile.
