Army denies deadly divisions at Enugu barracks

04 April 2016, 09:45Emeka Okonkwo

Abuja - The Nigerian Army has rejected online reports suggesting three soldiers had been killed owing to tribal divisions within the Army Barracks 82 Division Enugu.

Reports suggested the soldiers had been killed after an altercation in an unnamed barracks in 82 Division over nomination for peacekeeping operations, which led to exchange of gunfire.

“Apart from obvious flaws and inconsistency in the narration, the Nigerian Army wishes to emphatically state that no such incident occurred anywhere in the Nigerian Army, let alone 82 Division,” Sani Kukasheka Usman, Army spokesperson, said.

“In fact, the alleged reported incident existed only in the obviously negatively skewed minds of the authors of such fabrication.”

The general public has therefore been requested to discountenance the false story of Eastern Radio, said to be a secessionist platform.

“We would like to inform the public that the 82 Division Nigerian Army is intact in all its locations and deployments, same goes for all the various formations, units, cantonments and barracks of the Nigerian Army,” Usman said.

“It is therefore very imperative at this point to warn all those mischief makers to desist from these unpatriotic and obviously subversive acts in any guise,” added Usman.
