The Nigerian Army has dismissed social media reports, alleging complicity of its troops in the recent kidnap of the Prelate of the Methodist Church of Nigeria, Samuel Kanu-Uche.
The Director, Army Public Relations, Brigadier-General Onyema Nwachukwu, said this in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja.
Nwachukwu said the insinuation that troops were complicit in the kidnap incident could be swallowed hook line and sinker as it was not premised on any findings of investigations.
He said the allegation had raised some pertinent questions which were still unanswered.
According to him, given the spate of insecurity in the region, the question would be, was the issue reported to the unit covering the area?
