The Director, Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Sani Usman, said that all efforts to make the medium make amend proved abortive.

Consequently, the Nigerian Army sent a letter to the management of the online publishers to retract and apologize before December 31, 2016.

The medium, however, remained adamant and recalcitrant.

Consequently, the Nigerian Army has briefed its lawyers to institute legal action against the medium.
