The Nigerian Army says reports making the rounds that soldiers numbering over 380 applied for voluntary disengagement is a fake news story concocted by supporters of Boko Haram insurgents.

The report which recently made rounds on different media platforms alleged that no fewer than 380 soldiers applied for voluntary retirement, to the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, for voluntary retirement, citing lack of interest.

Reacting to the reports via a statement on its official twitter handle, the Nigerian army described the report as fake news story designed by supporters of Boko Haram with a view to dampening the morale of gallant and patriotic soldiers.

It went on to note that 386 soldiers recently left the army in a normal routine exercise at the end of their service, adding that the army is never in short supply of recruits as no fewer than 4, 600 patriots recently joined its ranks.
