The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has denied reports that the military plans to stop admission of Female Cadets as Regular Combatants officers.
Defence spokesman Major General John Enenche in a statement on Tuesday described the reports in print and online Media about stoppage of training female cadets to be commissioned as Regular Combatant officers into the Armed Forces of Nigeria as untrue.
He said, "This is an act of disinformation to the general public by mischievous individuals. The contents of all those publications are ill intended concoctions, not authentic and should therefore be disregarded outrightly."
He added that, the provision in the terms and conditions of service for female officers of the Nigerian Military is that, "They are eligible for all the types of Commission that are grantable to their male counterparts", which has not changed.
