The Nigerian Army has debunked the allegation by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) that its women were arrested while holding a meeting on Friday in Abriba, Abia State.
This was contained in a statement issued by the Army Deputy Director Public Relations, Colonel Sagir Musa, 82 Division on Saturday.
Col Sagir Musa said IPOB’s claims of molestation and arrest by soliders were baseless and unfounded and asked the public to disregard the allegation.
He said, “Let me make it clear that the drama and the allegation that followed were deliberately staged by IPOB. The allegation, just like others before it, is false, sheer IPOB’s propaganda to discredit the Nigerian Army, which at the moment, they will not succeed.

“Hence, I was able to confirm from the Officer in Charge of the patrol of Abiriba and its environs, Major Danjuma Ali and the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Abiriba, Superintendent Titus Ugwuoke who briefed me, there was no truth in the IPOB’s accusation.”
Meanwhile, IPOB through its spokesperson, Emma Powerful have called on Queen Elizabeth II of England, Theresa May the British Prime Minister, Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, and other human right organisation to condemn what they described as inhumane meted on their women.
