Spokesperson to the Minister of Defence, Mohammad Abdulkadri in a statement however stated that person in the video was the Rector of the Nigerian Army College of Environmental Science and Technology (NACEST) Makurdi, who by virtue of his Command position is statutorily allowed in the Military to sign for weapons when travelling.

The School’s Rector and Commandant is  Brig. Gen. Aminu Abdu .

Abdulkadri said in the statement that
“Infact the Army green colour on the Innonson Jeep and the Unit sticker of NACEST on the official Vehicle are enough evidences to neutralise the spurious claim in the clip being referred to as the Official vehicle of the Minister of Defence who uses black Land cruiser jeep like his counterparts in other ministries.”

He added that “Again the Internet fraud star’s desperate attempt to demean the personality of the Defence Minister proved null and void and untenable with the fake picture of the Orderly that wears blue colour of the insignia band of NA Education Corp whereas the Orderly to General Magashi (Name withheld) is of the Corp of the Military Police who uses red berret and MP red handband on his Camouflage.”
