The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has debunked media report that the Chief of Defence Staff General Christopher Musa is dead.
A statement by Director, Defence Information Bridgadier General Tukur Gusau described the report as “unfortunate, unethical and lack credibility. “
He said General Musa is alive and hearty.
“The attention of the Defence Headquarters has been drawn to an unfortunate publication by an online news paper alledging that the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), General Christopher Musa passed away yesterday. The report is unfortunate, unethical and lack credibility.
“To put the records straigth the CDS, General CG Musa is alive and hearty. The Chief of Defence Staff who just returned from an official assignment outside the country has resumed work with more vigour to continue with his uncommon leadership style to prosper the Armed Forces of Nigeria .
“The online newspaper has since retracted the news story and offered its unreserved apology to the CDS, his family and the Armed Forces of Nigeria,” he said.
