Defense Headquarters Addresses False Reports Regarding Chief of Defence Staff, CDS Christopher Musa.
The Defense Headquarters (DHQ) has categorically refuted recent claims of the passing of Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), General Christopher Musa, on Monday, November 20, 2023.
In a statement released on Tuesday, the DHQ clarified that General Musa is alive, in good health, and has recently returned from an official overseas assignment. Brigadier General Tukur Gusau, Director of Defence Information, emphasized that the circulated report concerning the alleged demise of the CDS is entirely unfounded and lacks credibility.
Gusau further noted that the media outlet responsible for disseminating the inaccurate news regarding General Musa’s demise has retracted the story and issued an apology to the CDS, his family, and the Nigerian Armed Forces.
The statement quoted, reads: “The attention of the Defence Headquarters has been drawn to an unfortunate publication by an online newspaper alleging that the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), General Christopher Musa passed away yesterday.
“The report is unfortunate, unethical and lack credibility.
“To put the records straight the CDS, General 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.
