•Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Buratai

The Nigerian Army has threatened that it would expose politically exposed persons who are collaborating with Boko Haram terrorists.

The Army also debunked   social media reports claiming that the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Tukur Buratai has been wounded in an ambush by the terrorists at an unnamed location in the North East while on his way to a courtesy visit to troops.

In a statement on Saturday, the Director of Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Sani Usman urged the general public to disregard the information as there had been no case of ambush against the troops in recent times.

The Army spokesman affirmed that the Chief of Army Staff was hale and hearty, conducting his official duties diligently. He said the "gallant troops" were currently dealing decisive blows on the Boko Haram terrorists in the Lake Chad area, adding that over 60 of the terrorists have either been captured or neutralised in the last three days.

“The Nigerian Army is also closing up with the political Boko Haram terrorists and their collaborators. They will soon be exposed and the law will take its course against them.

“We wish to use this opportunity to thank teeming Nigerians that called and showed concern over this fake news. We wish to assure you that no amount of mischief or campaign of calumny under any guise will distract the Chief of Army Staff from his determined efforts of leading a responsive Nigerian Army in the discharge of its Constitutional roles.”
