The Nigerian Airforce has tendered an apology after deceiving the general public with old photos and claiming it was taken from a recent battle with Boko Haram terrorists.

Recall that NA was called out and lambasted for what many called fake news.

The photos they posted were taken many years back.

While apologizing, the NA took to Twitter and wrote:

(1/4) Our attention has been drawn to the inclusion of some erroneous pictures amongst those posted earlier on the terrorists’ gun trucks & other vehicles destroyed by the Air Task Force of Operation LAFIYA DOLE (ATF OPLD) at Marte on 15/16 January 2021

(2/4) On further investigation, it has been discovered that the pictures sent from the OPLD Theatre inadvertently included a few pictures from other encounters with terrorist elements. The error is highly regretted.

(3/4) The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) wishes to state that the inclusion of the pictures was not deliberate & does not take anything away from the huge success of the air operation that dealt a decisive blow on the terrorists as shown in the widely circulated video.

(4/4)Most of the pictures earlier circulated were indeed from the recent successful air strikes at Marte. The few erroneous pictures have now been expunged & all pictures here are those from the “Battle of Marte”. Thank you for your understanding and continued support for the NAF
