The Nigerian Army have on Thursday, November 5 debunked the rumours that the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.Gen. Tukur Burutai was sponsoring the Non-Govermental Organisation named Centre for Africa Liberation and Socio-Economic Rights (CALSER).
Recall that Pinaxonline.com earlier published a story stating that CALSER gave a 7-day ultimatum to Amnesty International to vacate Nigeria or face destruction of their properties and lynching of the staff.
On Nigerian social media there were claims that the NGO was sponsored by General Burutai. Sahara Reporters also alleged that Burutai was the sponsor.
Taking to their Twitter account the Nigerian Army labelled the news publications as “Fake News”.
