November 21, (THEWILL) – The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has debunked reports that the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), General Christopher Musa, has died.
A report (not THEWILL) had claimed that the Defence Chief passed away on Monday.
But a statement issued on Tuesday, by the Director, Defence Information, Brigadier General Tukur Gusau, described the report as unfortunate, unethical, and as well lack credibility.
“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,” he added.
