The Nigerian Army has refuted a publication by PREMIUM TIMES online newspaper, which suggested that Nigeria has raised troops preparatory to the removal of Gambian President, Yahya Jammeh.
Brigadier General Sani Kukasheka, Director, Army Public Relations said in a statement issued Thursday in Abuja that the “Nigerian Army wishes to disassociate itself from such false information that exists only in the imagination of the medium. There was no time or place Nigerian Army disclosed such information to the medium. If there is any, we challenge them to name the officer or soldier that gave them such information and when.”
The Army spokesman emphasised that Nigeria was not planning to attack any country.
“The publication apart from being false in its entirety, it is unethical and capable of endangering the lives of Nigerians in the Diaspora,” the Army said while appealing to the media to always clarify such matters affecting national security and diplomatic issues that may endanger the safety and security of Nigerians abroad.
