The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has been accused of spearheading an airstrike in a village in Kaduna, but they have come out to deny it.
NAF dismissed claims that its aircraft accidentally bombed some villagers in Kaduna State.
The spokesperson for NAF, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, dismissed the report in a statement on Monday.
According to Gabkwet, the NAF had not carried out any air operations within Kaduna State and environs in the last 24 hours.
He added that the NAF was not the only organisation operating combat armed drones in the Northwestern region of Nigeria.
“The news making the rounds alleging that Nigerian Air Force (NAF) aircraft accidentally killed innocent civilians in Kaduna is false.
“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 said.
