The Nigeria Air force (NAF) has distanced itself from the alleged bombing of a village in Kaduna State, that led to the death of many.

In a statement, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, the Director of Public Relations and Information of the Nigerian Air Force, stated that “the news making the rounds alleging that Nigerian Air Force (NAF) aircraft accidentally killed innocent civilians in Kaduna is false.”

Please be informed that the NAF has not carried out any air operations within Kaduna State and environs in the last 24 hours.”

“Also, note that the NAF is not the only organization operating combat armed drones in the North western region of Nigeria. It is also important to ensure that due diligence is always exhausted by the media before going to press with unverified and unconfirmed reports,’ he added.
