NAF denies killing 250 Boko Haram members

Reports from The Nigerian Air Force says a supposed ‘Breaking News Flash’ with the headline “Nigerian Air Force Kills Over 250 Boko Haram Fighters In Maiduguri” is totally fake.
The NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, made this known in a statement on Sunday in Abuja.
Daramola said the fake news said to have been released on February 13 by one ‘Comr Aminu Shuaibu Musawa’ did not originate from the NAF.
“The NAF wishes to categorically state that the false sensational news item, with its gory doctored visuals, is totally fake and did not originate from the NAF.

He also said authentic information on the activities of the Service would always be released officially by the DOPRI and carried on the NAF website as well as NAF official social media handles.
“Any reports emanating from other sources without verification from the NAF should be completely discountenanced,” he said.
