DHQ denies mass retirement of army generals following appointment of new Chief of Army Staff

Nigerian Army

The Defence Headquarters has debunked claim of mass retirement of some generals in the Nigerian Army following the appointment of Farouk Yahaya as Chief of Army Staff (COAS).

Acting Director of Defence Media Operations, Bernard Onyeuko told newsmen on Thursday June 3 that retirement of senior officers from the military is always voluntary.

Onyeuko added that the military high command is yet to authorise the retirement of any officer.

He said;

“At this point, you are all aware of the appointment of the new Chief of Army Staff, Maj.-Gen. Farouk Yahaya.

“This has stirred up a lot of rumours in the media about mass retirements in the military.

“I wish to use this medium to dispel such unfounded rumours as retirement is only on a voluntary basis for senior officers who desire to do so.

“At this point, no retirements have been authorised by the military high command.”
