Alex Badeh: See Dates For The Burial Of Former CDS

The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has demanded that those spreading misinformation about the incident that led to the murder of the former Air Chief Marshal, Alex Badeh should stop as this could have adverse effects on the conduct of ongoing operations.

According to NAF, some of the reports erroneously stated that the driver of the late Badeh, who was also shot during the incident, was dead but the driver is alive and recuperating extremely well.

Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, made this demand in a statement on Thursday, in Abuja.

He said, “Other reports allege that adequate security was not provided for the deceased Air Chief Marshal.

”The NAF wishes to state categorically that nothing could be further from the truth.

“Firstly, all are please requested to note that the driver is alive and recuperating extremely well at one of our NAF Hospitals.

“Secondly, Air Chief Marshal Badeh has always been provided with the full compliment of personal staff and security personnel commensurate with his status as a former Chief of the Air Staff (CAS), CDS and a 4-star general in the Armed Forces of Nigeria.

“As mentioned by the CAS, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, on Dec. 19, the NAF is working closely with other relevant security agencies to determine the circumstances surrounding the death of the former CDS.

“This is with a view to ensuring that the perpetrators of the heinous act are brought to justice.

“Substantial progress has already been made in the ongoing investigation and details would be communicated at the appropriate time.

“The NAF wishes to request that the spreading of misinformation about the incident should stop forthwith as this could have adverse effects on the conduct of ongoing operations.”
