Chief of Defence Staff begs Nigerians over bombing mistake in Kaduna
The Chief of Defence Staff, Christopher Musa

Christopher Musa, the Chief of Defence Staff, has earnestly requested Nigerians to refrain from criticizing the military following the accidental drone attack on Tudun Biri community in Kaduna State on Sunday.

Addressing the audience at the graduation ceremony of the Senior Executive Course (SEC) 45 at the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS) in Kuru, near Jos, Musa emphasized the need for empathy and support rather than disparagement. He acknowledged the challenging task entrusted to the troops in addressing the prevailing security issues in the country.

In a bid to prevent demoralization among the troops, the military chief underscored the importance of recognizing the immense responsibility they bear in ensuring the nation’s security. Musa’s plea comes as authorities work to manage the aftermath of the unintended drone strike, urging the public to consider the complexities faced by the military in their efforts to tackle insecurity.

As the nation navigates through this challenging situation, the Chief of Defence Staff’s appeal serves as a reminder of the dedication and sacrifice of the troops working to uphold the safety and well-being of the citizens.

He said;

“The incident wasn’t on purpose. We are meant to protect Nigerians and cannot be seen killing them.

And so, I want to appeal to Nigerians not to use this incident to demoralise our troops because we are determined to end all forms of insecurity currently confronting our nation.

The incident in Kaduna is, indeed, unfortunate and regrettable. It was a mistake and not a deliberate act.”
