Popular musician Duncan Mighty has come under fire from an alumni association of the Nigerian Military School Zaria.
Trouble started when Duncan Mighty posted a photo of himself and several army officers claiming that the he was an ex boy of the school.
The alumni association of the NMS took to their Instagram page to raise an alarm that Mighty is not an old boy of their school.
In their press release, the association stated that the popular musician needs to stop parading himself as having attended the school because they have evidence to support the fact that he did not attend the class he claims to have graduated with.
Read their post below:
“In response to the outrageously false allegations posted on the 2nd of July 2018, by one Duncan Wene Mighty Okechukwu simply known as Duncan Mighty via his Instagram handle @duncanmighty
The Nigerian Military School Class of 99 (Also known as NMS93) would like to express it’s disappointment with Mr. Duncan Wene Mighty Okechukwu’s claims and issue the following statement to the media and to the public.
1. Duncan Wene Mighty Okechukwu was never a member of the NMS Class he claims in his Instagram post which has since gone viral on social media platforms and the internet at large.
2. He was never a boy/student of Bravo Company.
3. He has never attended either academic or military trainings as required for a student of the Nigerian Military School,
4. He is not an Ex-Boy (By definition and implication, an Ex-Boy is an individual who was admitted, successfully completed required military and academic trainings and with merit graduated from the Nigerian Military school with a testimonial credential signifying same)
5. He is no course mate of any genuine member of the graduating class of NMS99 also referred ceremoniously as The 41st Passing Out Platoon.
The NMS93 Alumni Association humbly requests that Mr. Duncan Wene Mighty Okechukwu desist from posing as an alumnus for whatever reasons or benefits known to him.
The association would also like to register its displeasure with the photographic images of Mr. Duncan where he appears in military camouflage with the service rank of Captain while not well groomed and wearing earrings.
While his intentions might be for good and not self-serving, from our perspective we insist that posing as a soldier albeit an officer is “a disservice to the proud men and women of the Nigerian Armed Forces, who earn the right to wear their uniforms for the hard work and sacrifices made for our country.
The association warns that anyone relating with Mr Duncan Wene Mighty Okechukwu, under the impression that he is an alumnus of NMS99 does so at their own risk.
nms93_exboysThe association however welcomes his interactions with genuine members of our Alma Mater and by large the military community of which we are also related to and wish him well in his endeavors.
Accept the warmest regards of the association.
NMS93 Alumni Association”
