We have no plans to invade Gambia – Army

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.

“Consequently, Nigerian Army wishes to disassociate itself from such false information that exists only in the figment of the imagination of the medium.
“There was no time or place Nigerian Army disclosed such information to the medium. If there is any, we challenge them to name the officer or soldier that gave them such information and when. For the avoidance of doubt, Nigerian Army is not planning to attack any country.
“It should be noted that such reckless and unprofessional conduct is not expected of any reputable and responsible news medium as it is inimical to national security.
“The publication apart from being false in its entirety, it is unethical and capable of endangering the lives of Nigerians in diaspora.
“The medium is please requested to always clarify such matters affecting national security and diplomatic issues that may endanger the safety and security of Nigerians abroad to avoid such misleading and embarrassing publication.”

  1. My only regret in all this is that when “two elephants fight the grass suffers “. When for God’s sake will African leaders consider or even pity the the poor masses they rule. For Jammey to have ruled for 22 years and still want to rule is just wickedness and must be stopped,but in such a way that those poverty-stricken Gambians shld not be finished in the. God help Africa. As for PMB, he too wld have even done worse if GEJ had even won d 2015 election because he had already promised that blood of baboons wld flow in Nigeria if he didn’t win,tnx to God for GEJ for not allowing his political ambition to override him. Yet more than lives have been lost in Nigeria since 2015. We are like d proverbial man who is busy chasing rats when his house is on fire.
