The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has denied a newspaper publication on planned retirement of officers from the service.
Group Capt. Ayodele Famuyiwa, Director of Public Relations and Information, denied the report said in a statement made available to newsmen on Tuesday in Abuja.
The statement quoted Ayodele as saying that the story was unfounded and did not emanate from NAF.
“The publication alleged that NAF is on the verge of retiring a number of senior officers connected with the ongoing investigation of arms purchase under the immediate past administration.
“It is pertinent to state that this story is unfounded and did not emanate from NAF.’’
The statement advised newsmen to always confirm their story with NAF before publication.
