Nigerian Army slams Abia governor, says no withdrawal of troops from Abia state

Nigerian Army slams Abia governor, says no withdrawal of troops from Abia state

The Nigerian Army says it will go ahead with its planned military operation in the South-east.

The army, in a statement issued at about 12:42 a.m on Friday, advised Nigerians to disregard the statement by Governor Okezie Ikpeazu which gave the impression that it was withdrawing its troops from the exercise codenamed “Operation Python Dance II.”
“It’s not true that we are withdrawing the troops,” the army spokesperson, Sani Usman, said in the statement.

The Governor of Abia State, Mr. Ikpeazu, had said on Thursday that the army from Friday would commence a gradual withdrawal of troops from the streets of Abia.

“This (the governor’s remark) should not be misconstrued as withdrawing of troops earmarked for Exercise EGWU EKE II,” Mr. Usman, a brigadier general, said, adding that “The General Officer Commanding 82 Division has not said such thing.”
The army said the exercise will commence as scheduled and would run till the end of the year.

  1. That means that genocide of Igbos youths have started. Tyrant Buhari and jihadist Fulani want to silence Igbos in order to exterminate Biafrans from Nigeria. Igbo and Biafrans world-wide must work together to fight this battle – and we will because if not we are doomed forever.
