A statement by the Special Assistant to the Minister on Media and Publicity, Muhammad Abbdulkadir says, the video is misleading as findings reveal the person in the video, is the Rector of the Nigerian Army College of Environmental Science and Technology Makurdi.
The statement noted that, by virtue of the Rector’s Command position, he has permission in the Military to carry weapons when travelling.
The statement enjoined the public to disregard the false information being spread by mischief-makers.
