NAF spokesman, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, said the Force was not involved in any air operations that killed some villagers within Kaduna State and its environs over the past 24 hours.
A statement by Gabwet said: ”The news making the rounds alleging that Nigerian Air Force (NAF) aircraft accidentally killed innocent civilians in Kaduna is false.
”Please be informed that the NAF has not carried out any air operations within Kaduna State and environs in the last 24 hours. Also, note that the NAF is not the only organization 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.”
