Nigeria Army Insist Not Moving Out Of Aba,Umuahia. The Nigeria Army has made it clear that it is not hauling its troops out of Abia state.
In a news meeting on Thursday, Abia state Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, had expressed that the armed force had consented to haul its troops out of Aba and Umuahia – the two most unpredictable zones of the state.
Ikpeazu likewise said he was attempting to guarantee the aggregate withdrawal of troops from the state.
In any case, in an announcement issued by its representative, Sani Usman, on Thursday night, the armed force said it would do its operation ‘Python Dance’ to “legitimate finishing” in the state.
“The consideration of the Nigerian armed force has been attracted to a few stories in the media that it is pulling back its troops from Exercise Egwu Eke II, attributing such data to Abia state senator and the general officer summoning 82 division Nigerian armed force. This is not valid. The Nigerian armed force wishes to urge individuals from the general population to dismisses such bits of gossip,” it said.
“For the shirking of uncertainty, the Abia state representative in his discourse expressed that ‘there will be progressive withdrawal of officers in the city of Aba and Umuahia from tomorrow’. This ought not be confounded as pulling back of troops reserved for Exercise Egwu Eke II. The general officer telling 82 division has not said such thing.
“Therefore, we wish to express that Exercise Egwu Eke II is starting tomorrow as planned. Officers have been told to guarantee that all hands are on deck to start the activity to its consistent culmination. We wish to state promote that the effective finishing of the activity will dovetail into the different states security outfits till the finish of this current year.”
