Following the recent sacking of top ranking officers by the Nigerian Army, many reports have emanated from the Nigerian Media that the Nigerian Air force to was in line to sack some of it’s officers. But in a statement released by the Nigerian Air force, the purported story was only a rumour after all. And it has been debunked accordingly.
The statement reads below
The attention of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has been drawn to the publication on pages 1-2 of New Telegraph newspaper of Monday 13 June 2016 titled “Arm Scandal: Air Force to retire AVMs, Commodores”.
The publication alleged that the NAF is at the verge of retiring a number of senior officers connected with the ongoing investigation of arms purchase under the immediate past administration.
It is pertinent to state that this story is unfounded and did not emanate from the NAF. The Press is therefore please advised to always confirm their story with the NAF before publication.
