Army explains COAS Faruk Yahaya’s ’36 years’ service record

“In the case of the 22nd COAS as he stated clearly, he was commissioned on 22nd September 1990 which is reference point for his service years. “This, therefore, means the message being circulated is completely inaccurate and out of context,” he said. The Army spokesperson, however, urged the public to disregard claims that tended to portray that the COAS had spent 36 years in service. According to him, the claims emanated from lack of knowledge of the military service or out of mischief which can best be explained by their authors.
