The Nigerian Navy has denied the reports that it recruited sectional names of all Northerners in the just-released supplementary list of the force.
Newsleverage had reported on Monday that the Nigerian Navy published a list that contained 44 names of all Northerners in its supplementary list.
A press release by the Public Relations Officer revealed that the publication was false and did not emanate from the Naval Headquarters.

PUBLIC ADVISORY ON A FAKE SECTIONAL SUPPLEMENTARY LIST OF SUCCESSFUL CANDIDATES IN NIGERIAN NAVY RECRUITMENT
1. The attention of the Nigerian Navy has been drawn to a purported sectional list of supplementary candidates in the Nigerian Navy recruitment exercise trending online and amplified by an online newspaper of questionable integrity.
For the avoidance of doubt, the list is fake and did not emanate from the Naval Headquarters.
The public is therefore advised to treat the list as a pitiable ploy of mischief makers and idle minds intent on creating ill feelings amongst the Nigerian public thereby stoking sectional and religious sensibilities.
The Nigerian Navy is currently exploring legal means of seeking redress over this mischievous story
