Army's Official Statement About The Abia NUJ & Soldiers Fracas In Umuahia by hakeem4(m): 3:41am On Sep 13
NO FRACAS BETWEEN NUJ ABIA STATE AND SOLDIERS ON PATROL IN UMUAHIA

The attention of 14 Brigade Nigerian Army, has been drawn to social media publications alleging that troops on patrol in Umuahia town have invaded the NUJ Press Centre in Umuahia at about 10.00am today.

While it was true there was an issue between some soldiers on routine patrol, the magnitude is not as was reported. What happened was that while the soldiers on patrol near the Abia State NUJ Secretariat, they noticed some people filming them. Unfortunately, they seized and damaged their recording devices; an iPad and 2 mobile phones. Preliminary investigation shows that the items belongs to journalists on their legitimate duties. Consequently, the Commander 14 Brigade and Deputy Director Army Public Relations 82 Division waded into the matter which has since been resolved amicably.

In addition, the soldiers involved will face disciplinary action.

The public are please requested to eschew rumour mongering and go about their lawful business.

Major Oyegoke Badamosi
Assistant Director Public Relations 14 Brigade

The spirit of Lai Mohammed has infected the Nigerian Army.


You merely SEIZED some journalists Ipad and phones...but there was a video of smashed ipad and chairs shown by Channels TV?

Try again sir...did you SEIZE or did you DESTROY some journalists equipments?


When did it become an offence to record your activities that so much boils your blood over, if you have not been involved in atrocities and extra judicial killings as accused?


Fasting and prayer is needed for your deliverance to happen.

It's only legal when the hausa's "prepare suya". No other tribe is allowed to cook meat.

military men on patrol have no business with anybody filming them. they simply ignore and march on. i do that a lot to the soldiers at dodan barracks and sometimes they give me thumbs up.

these one in abia were sent to attack the ipob leader and i fear for the innocent who might get caught in the crossfire...because i know no difference between a soldier and a zombie.
