The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has denied reports that military are owing troops under Operation Sharan Daji deployed to quell unwarranted killings of people in Zamfara, kebbi, Katina, Sokoto and Birni Kwari  areas of Kaduna State, North West Nigeria.
The Director of Defence Information (DDI), Brig-Gen. John Agim, in a statement yesterday, said rather the troops have taken the battle to the forests where the bandits and militias use as hideout before their numerous attack on innocent citizens.
Agim however, regretted that “now that the tide has changed against the bandits, there is a plot to distract and cause disaffection among our troops with a false message circulating in the social media that the troops allowances are not being paid completely.
“Let me state categorically here that, there is no other special allowance approved from Defence Headquarters than what is being paid to the troops in Operation Sharan Daji, and the troops allowances are paid up to date. In fact, even the troops August allowances have been paid to the Force Commander and arrangement has been completed to pay their August allowances by next week.”
He urged the troops to remain focused and not distracted as  the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), Gen  Abayomi Olanisakin,  is always concerned about the welfare of troops, knows and approves all their allowances.
The DDI also advised the public  to disregard the false message as it is intended to distract and discourage the fighting spirit of our gallant troops.
