The Defence Headquarters has denied media reports that it had stopped the admission of female cadets into its academy. On Monday, November 13th, there were reports that the defense headquarters had terminated the admission of female cadets. The reports alleged that the service chiefs in a meeting with President Buhari last week, recommended that female cadets should no longer be admitted into the defence academy. The reports alleged that the recommendations were based on the opinions of some Muslim clerics that women should not be trained in rigorous activities by men.
The Defence Headquarters has now released a statement denying the claim. Read the statement below
