Cross River: No Military Bombardment In Calabar by Unblockable: 12:18am On Jun 24, 2015
TANoids, see una life Cc Lalasticlala, Ishilove

There is no military expedition or bombardment in Calabar, the Cross River State capital, the government said yesterday.

Christian Ita, the chief press secretary to Governor Ben Ayade, said the report of a bombardment in Calabar was “unfounded and untrue, fabricated by twisted minds for devious purposes”.

In a statement in Calabar, the spokesman said there was no basis for such incident.

He said: “There is no military raid going on in Calabar. There has been no bomb attack in the state capital. The only military expedition that took place sometime last week was an operation undertaken by the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) to flush out criminals on the Cross River/Akwa Ibom waterways, which is far removed from towns and civilian population.”

Ita added that the military exercise only lasted a day.

He said: “As long as we cannot dissuade or prevent anybody from pursuing any course they deem fit, they should leave Cross River State out of their clandestine campaign and look elsewhere. All pictures purportedly showing places that were bombed were all simulated; they are products of photoshop.”

The bitter children of hate and despair will not like this busting of their propaganda, they thought they could kill three birds with one stone through their lies.

1. Make the world leaders aware of Biafra by crying massacre where there was none

2. Psychologically make the Calabar people feel like they are part of Biafra, and Ibos care for them and are their big brother.

3. Demonize President Buhari and his administration.

Some of us were not fooled for a minute, I busted their fake pictures on this thread...

https://www.nairaland.com/2393289/photos-calabar-militants-bombing-fake

They bombarded Twitter with their phoney photos and claims, mentioning world leaders and the same Amnesty International they were insulting two weeks ago, only to be ignored so shamefully their leader was insulting the global media all day.

If world leaders and the international press needed confirmation that biafrans are troublesome noise-makers that cry wolf where there is none and should not be taken serious ever again, this busted propaganda has given it to them.

Mission FAILED.

Smh. Some people will just sit behind their computers to concoct evil. Throughout last week they were spamming the section with alleged pictures of the bombing and crying blue murder, even after the inhabitants of Calabar came online to state that there was nothing like that happening. One even alleged that the people of Calabar were being napalmed. Napalm!!

Shame.

It's unfortunate we have so many unpatriotic Nigerians who are blinded by tribal and political affiliation to the extent that they are ready to sensationalise every move by the government. If the security forces refuse to fight criminals, people will complain about their inefficiency. If they fight them like they did in calabar waterways, tanoids and Biafra agitators will politicise it to score cheap point.

Reasonable Nigerians who want the country to progress should stand up against these enemies of the country. Kudos to the cross rivers state government for coming out clearly to put a lie to the propaganda of the tanoids. Supporting criminality in the name of opposition should not be condone by any meaningful government.

So what happened?
The airforce went there to share sweets?
Where is it done that a country's Airforce is sent to bombard criminals in peace time without first raiding them on land - the conventional military procedure.

Buhari being the ethnocentric man he is, probably share in the common thought in the north, that GEJ and Ihejirika were avenging the civil war during their anti-bokoharam campaign.

This does not negate the fact Buhari left insurgents to bomb an otherwise peaceful Niger Delta.
