The Defence Headquarters has debunked a newspaper report which alleged that the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), Gen. Christopher Musa has died on Monday.

The Director of Defence Information, Brig.-Gen. Tukur Gusau, stated this  in a statement on Tuesday in Abuja.


He dismissed the report as unfortunate, unethical and lacking in credibility.

Brig.-Gen Gusau said: “To put the records straight, the CDS, Gen. CG Musa is alive and hearty.

“The Chief of Defence Staff, who just returned from an official assignment outside the country has resumed work with more vigour to continue with his uncommon leadership style to prosper the Armed Forces of Nigeria .

“The newspapers have since retracted the news story and offered its unreserved apology to the CDS, his family and the Armed Forces of Nigeria,” he said.
