In its reaction, the Nigerian military through its Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Texas Chukwu, denied knowing Sergeant David Bako, noting that such publication no doubt was targeted to smear and drag the Nigerian Army into politics of calumny by mischief makers.
Read the full statement below:
The attention of the Nigerian Army has been drawn to a news report making round on Facebook and other social media to smear and drag the Nigerian Army into politics of calumny by mischief makers, that one deserted Sergeant David Bako leaks how Dapchi Girls abduction was planned in the villa and executed with N80 million.
The information was said to be provided by Sergeant David Bako who claimed to be deserted soldier and one of the abductees of the Dapchi School Girls. The Nigerian Army therefore put the record straight that it has crosscheck it records and cannot find any one call Sergeant David Bako who neither serves in the Army, deserted or dismissed.
The Nigerian Army therefore disassociate itself with such fictitious report and request the public to disregard the confession made by the so call Sergeant David Bako who has not been in the Army at all.
