The Nigerian Army has denied as untrue claims by an online news platform (not YNaija) that it planned to send troops into Gambia.
In a statement on Thursday by its spokesperson, Brig.-Gen. Sani Usman, the army described the report as false and a figment of the imagination of the medium.
The statement said, “The attention of the Nigerian Army has been drawn to a publication by Premium Times an online news medium titled “EXCLUSIVE: Nigeria raises troops for Gambia, ready to remove Yahya Jammeh”. This is not true.
