Military reacts to video of Majority Leader, Ado-Doguwa firing AK-47

The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) on Friday said that the video showing Alhassan Ado-Doguwa, the Majority Leader of the House of Representatives in Kano State, firing an AK-47 rifle while guided by military personnel was captured at Falgore Forest Military Training Camp in the State.

In a statement issued by the Acting Director, Defence Information, Brig.-Gen. Tukur Gusau, the DHQ said the video was recorded during the 3 Brigade Nigerian Army Training Exercise where the lawmaker was invited as a special guest.

The statement read in part, “The Defence Headquarters wishes to state that the video is a calculated attempt by mischief makers to discredit the Armed Forces of Nigeria and dent its image before the good people of this country and the world at large.

“It’s worthy to state that when senior citizens and Special Guests are invited for such exercises, they are accorded the honour to participate in the firing exercise as a ceremonial firing party.

“However, the viral video of Hon Doguwa was posted with an intent to dent the image of the Armed Forces of Nigeria.”
