The Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, has declared that neither its operatives nor patrol vehicles were attacked on Monday and debunked contents of a viral video purporting that gunmen attacked its operatives at Umueri, Anambra East Local Government Area.

In a video, armed persons claiming to be Biafra motherland defenders/fighters were seen and purportedly targeting NSCDC personnel and their operational vehicle for the said attack.

But in a statement on Monday by the NSCDC Anambra Command, the paramilitary organisation said there was no truth in the viral video.
The statement was signed by Mr Edwin Okadigbo, a Deputy Superintendent of Corps and Command Public Relations Officer.

It noted that the video was being shared on social media by crisis merchants and mischief makers, declaring that Anambra was peaceful and calm.

“The attention of the NSCDC, Anambra State Command has been drawn to a video in circulation in the social media insinuating that Civil Defence officers and vehicle were attacked on Aug. 30 at Nenyi Umueri.

“We wish to state that there is no iota of truth in the video in circulation. All NSCDC facilities in Anambra State are safe.

“In addition, all operational vehicles in the state deployed for assignments are without any untoward incident today.

“This is purely the handwork of crisis merchants and mischief makers who want to create panic and fear in the minds of Anambra people and residents alike.

“The Command, with other sister security agencies are working in synergy to ensure that security situation in Anambra is intact,’’ Okadigbo stated.

He commended the people for the collaboration and support of its activities.

He appealed that information about the NSCDC should be confirmed before being circulated to avoid misleading the public.
