Former governor of Delta State, James Ibori, has shared documents designated as unclassified containing communication between the United States House of Representatives and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Mark Milley.
Mr Ibori shared the documents on social media on Thursday night.
The first document was dated June 1 from the chairman of the House Committee on Armed Services, Ruben Gallego, to Milley.
“Do you intend to obey illegal orders from the President?” the document read.
Milley replied in a letter dated June 4, saying “absolutely not”.
The communication, though not confirmed yet, is believed to be in respect to President Donald Trump’s threat to deploy soldiers to quell protests in some parts of the US where demonstrations have gone violent over the killing of a black man, George Floyd, by Minnesota police.
