The Nigerian Army has clarified that it would be training the 76 Regular Recruits Intake (76RRI) in the Sambisa forest.
The Army spokesman, Brig.-Gen. Sani Usman, in a statement on Saturday, urged the public to disregard messages on the social media platfroms purportedly emanating from the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai to that effect.
Usman described the message as mischievous, saying“ this is not true”. “Members of the public are therefore requested to disregard it in its entirety.
“They should also be wary of fraudsters that request for gratification from interested candidates or their families. Recruitment into the Nigerian Army is free.”
Meanwhile, Usman said that more armed bandits surrendered their arms in Zamfara State on Friday.
