The Nigerian Air Force has denied the report making round that its base in Kaduna State was attacked by Boko Haram in the early hours of Saturday.
A statement by the Air Force Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, on Saturday revealed that nothing of such happened as inhabitants are going about their business as usual.
It urged members of the public to disregard the report as it entirely false and stated that the entire base is going about its business without any threat.
The statement reads, “Merchants of fake news are at it again. This time around, their focus is on the premier Nigerian Air Force Base at Kaduna, which they claimed came under terrorist attack in the early hours of today, 26 June 2021. Members of the public should please disregard the news as it is entirely false. There was nothing of such as the inhabitants of the entire Base are going about their normal activities and duties without any threat whatsoever.”
Earlier today, Sahara Reporters had stated that there was an attempt by members of a terrorist group Boko Haram to attack the base through the backside.
