The Nigerian Air Force has denied claims that residents were killed inadvertently during an air attack in Kaduna.

Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, stated that the service has not performed any operations in the state or its vicinity in the previous 24 hours.

He also stated that the Air Force is not the only agency in the North West that employs armed drones.

“The news making the rounds alleging that Nigerian Air Force aircraft accidentally killed innocent civilians in Kaduna is false,” the statement said.

“Please be informed that the NAF has not carried out any air operations within Kaduna State and its environs in the last 24 hours.

“Also, note that the NAF is not the only organisation operating combat-armed drones in the Northwestern region of Nigeria.

“It is also important to ensure that due diligence is always exhausted by the media before going to press with unverified and unconfirmed reports.”
