The Nigerian Army has denied a story by the Concerned Militant Leaders (CML) of Niger Delta which suggests that 24 soldiers were abducted by the group.
Spokesman of CML, General Ben, had said last week:
“We will decide what to do with the 24 soldiers captured. Their Pilot 1, MB12 Thunder Boat is in our custody.
“This is our territory and they cannot escape from our domain because they have crossed our border.”
However, PRO of the Nigerian Army, Sani Usman, has called bluff on the claims, stating that such incident did not take place.
