Killing of soldiers in Aba: Senator Abaribe Commends Nigerian Army's Professionalism, Denies Altercation Reports | #NwokeukwuMascot

Abuja, June 2, 2024 - Former Senate Minority Leader, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, has commended the professionalism of the Nigerian Army in their interactions with the public, strongly refuting claims of an altercation involving himself and army personnel.

In a statement released by his Media Adviser, Uchenna Awom, Abaribe addressed reports circulating on social media that alleged he was involved in an incident with soldiers at a checkpoint in Obingwa. The reports suggested that soldiers detained and humiliated him while he was returning from a burial last Thursday.

Describing these claims as "laughable" and "false," Abaribe emphasized that the soldiers at the checkpoint conducted themselves in a courteous and professional manner. "I was never accosted, delayed, or approached in a disrespectful manner by the soldiers," Abaribe stated. "My observation at the point was that of a professional force carrying out their duty in a most humane and respectful manner, despite the events of the day."

Abaribe also questioned the motives behind the speculative reports, which included unfounded claims that he had called the State Governor, Alex Otti, for intervention. "One wonders the motive of the author of the jaundiced and highly speculative report," he said. "I am not the type to be dragged into a shadow and very unwarranted hatred against Governor Otti. If I have any issues to clarify with the government, I will approach the governor directly."

Reaffirming his support for the Nigerian Army, Abaribe condemned the false reports as politically motivated. "I salute the soldiers and reiterate my earlier statement condemning what happened last Thursday. That report is false and authored to achieve a devious political goal," he concluded.
