The Nigerian Army's 4 Brigade in Benin has refuted recent claims about planning a 10km, three-day charity walk in the city.

Captain Yemi Sokoya, the Assistant Director of Army Public Relations, stated that the reports suggesting that the Army intended to organize this walk to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Nigerian Army Officers’ Wives Association are entirely false.

Sokoya said, “The attention of 4 Brigade Nigerian Army has been drawn to a flyer on social media entitled: ‘A three-day charity exercise/10km trek 2023’’ to celebrate 25 years of Nigerian Army Officers Wives Association.

“The event according to the fraudsters behind the publication is scheduled to hold between November 3 and November 5, beginning from the Officers Mess, 4 Brigade, Ekehaun Army Barracks, Benin.

“The brigade states that this flyer is from fraudulent individuals and the general public should please kindly disregard their solicitation for funds.

“The brigade has put efforts in place to arrest the criminals hiding under a reputable organisation like NAOWA to defraud unsuspecting Nigerians.”

He advised members of the public to report any suspicious activities either online or within their vicinity to security agencies for immediate action.
