Residents of Aba last night put to wake following a fake information that circulated through the social media and phone calls.
ABACITYBLOG reporter was one of the victims of the fake info.
He recalled how he received a call around 1am midnight and was alerted to be vigilant.
The report alleged that Aba was invaded by some elements described as Fulani herdsmen.
According to the caller, the hoodlums invaded a resident of Uratta, killed and burn the house to the ground.
He also alleged that the people go along with riffle and different ammunition.
In the morning when ABACITYBLOG reporter storm Uratta to ascertain the fact of the story we found out that there is nothing like a clash between Hausa and Igbo.
A resident who spoke to ABACITYBLOG said, they slept fine and there is nothing like fight nor clash.
She said: I don’t understand what you mean, all I know is there was no clash last night here, but we heard gunshots and it was later revealed that is the soldiers that shot the it….. Remember there is curfew in Aba, she added.
“Although, the clash I could recall is the one that happened on Tuesday between IPOB and The Nigerian military.
For now everywhere is calm and cool.
In conclusion, the truth is Aba is calm, and the military is only targeting the IPOB members who are going around with Biafran flag and mufflers.
ABACITYBLOG urges the members of the public to stop the trend that Aba is on fire, stop putting fear into people’s lives, we the people of South East should stop being our own enemies.
Learn to verify information before passing out.
Note: We received a distress call that there was also a clash happened last night at Obohia and PH road but we will confirm before reporting.
No clash at Uratta, Osisioma, Umungasi and many other places.
