From Victor Osula, Abuja
CDS, Gen Christopher Musa
Contrary to an online report that the Chief of Defense Staff, General Christopher Musa has died, the Defence Headquarters on Monday debunked report, saying he was alive and hearty.
Debunking the said report on Tuesday, the Director, Defence Information, Brigadier General Tukur Gusau, described the report as unfortunate, unethical and lacking in credibility.
He said, “To put the records straight, 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.”
