According to a report in Free Malaysia Today (Military shells PAS leader), Nizar had claimed that Najib asked the Armed Forces's Chiefs of Staff if/for the military would/to do "something" if BN lost the impending general election, and they had said the military would back the rakyat (people).
True or not we do not know. However, according to the above article, the Chiefs of Staff chastised Nizar saying he is irresponsible and would make a police report against the former Perak MB.
The Chiefs of Staff maintained that they would always remain professional and uphold the Federal Constitution.
