By Ikenga Chronicles December 12, 2016

Following the endorsement of the immediate retirement of top army Generals by President Muhammadu Buhari, Defence Headquarters has raised an alarm over the report, describing it as  ‘’false.’’

Recall that it was widely reported that Buhari had approved the retirement from service of the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), General Gabriel Olonisakin, and the Chief of Naval Staff (CNS), Vice Admiral Ibok-Ete Ekwe Ibas.

They were allegedly directed to handover on or before Friday December 16.

In a statement, the Director Defence Information, Brigadier General Rabe Abubakar described the rumours as baseless and unfounded. He added that the service chiefs are still discharging their official responsibilities.

General Rabe said: “It is disturbing and embarrassing the cooked up stories going round in the social media.

“There is no iota of truth in the misleading information. We ask the public to ignore the report as baseless and unfounded” he concluded
