The Nigerian Air Force, NAF, has denied bombing Buhari Village in Yunusari Local Government Area of Yobe State.
No fewer than nine residents of Buhari Village were reportedly killed in the attack on Wednesday morning.
The spokesperson of the Air Force, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, in a statement said the claim that a NAF jet bombarded Buhari village and killed about ten people while injuring many others is false in its entirety.
It added that no operation was carried out in the said area in the past ten days.
“This tweet is false in its entirety. The NAF last conducted a mission in Yobe State (not Yunusari LGA) on September 5, 2021, and it was an armed recce. No bomb or missile was even expended,” the statement read.
