“The military has conducted a painstaking investigation into the incident and has initiated disciplinary action against those culpable.

Accordingly, the affected personnel are to face a court martial for acts of omission or commission with respect to the incident.

“I am however constrained not to speak much about the incident as it would be adjudged as prejudicial being a case before court martial.

“The military will take extra precautions in the future to ensure that non combatants are safe,” he said.

Recall that on December 3, 2023, 85 civilians were mistakenly killed in military drone attacks in Tudun Biri, Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State..
