We didn't invade any community in Abia State - Nigerian Army



The Nigerian Army says “there is no invasion of any community by the soldiers in Abia State and in the entire South Eastern part of Nigeria.”

Deputy Director Public Relations, 82 Division Nigerian Army, Colonel Sagir Musa, condemned the report and asked Nigerians to disregard such.

“Let me firmly reiterate that there is no invasion of any community by the soldiers in Abia State and in the entire South-Eastern part of Nigeria.

“The rumour is baseless and mischievous and should, therefore, be disregarded,” Colonel Musa said in a statement on Thursday.

He blamed what he called “supporters of violent secessionist agitation” for the report, saying troops have been carrying out their duties in the region in line with the rules of engagement.

Musa, however, asked them to join the military in tackling security challenges – such as kidnapping among other crimes – in the state and in the South-East region.

He said: “Mischief makers, propagandists and supporters of violent secessionist agitation, as well as any other person or group with criminal disposition, are the ones wickedly peddling this rumour.Soldiers in Aba are lawfully deployed, with a clear mandate, Rules of Engagement and Code of Conduct to combat identified obvious security challenges in South-East Nigeria.”

“Soldiers in Aba are lawfully deployed, with a clear mandate, Rules of Engagement and Code of Conduct to combat identified obvious security challenges in South-East Nigeria.”

“Thus, issues of kidnappings, cultism, farmers -herdsmen clashes, violent secessionist agitation and insurgency among other menaces have been made severally and soundly clear as the focus and target of Exercise EGWU EKE II.The earlier we appreciate this and work together, the better for the peace and security of our society.”

  1. How did Buhari what allegedly looted Petroleum Trust Fund become President?

    So, that uninformed Nigerians may know:

    Saddam Hussein, the former President of Iraq was tried, convicted and executed by hanging for murdering 122 Iraqi citizens in the Dujail Province of Iraq. Buhari has so far, massacred more than 122 Nigerian citizens and therefore, should face similar fate like Saddam Hussein.
    What's your thought on that? Isn’t that justice?
