We're Not Constructing Ruga Settlement In Southeast - Army

The Daily Crucible | Published Wednesday, October 13, 2021

The 82 Division Nigerian Army has said that it is not building  Ruga Settlement anywhere in Southeast geopolitical zone of the country.

The army division also said it has 
noted with utmost concern, a baseless allegation aired through an outlawed online radio that it is currently constructing a Ruga Settlement between Ochima and Affa in Igbo-Etiti and Udi Local Government Areas, Enugu State.

Major Abubakar Abdullah, the Acting   Deputy Director of Army  Public Relations, described as an inciting broadcast that emanated from a source bereft of any credibility whatsoever in a release on Wednesday, stressing that there was  need however to present the facts clearly for the sake of posterity.

" It must be emphasised that Nigerian Army Engineers are not constructing any Ruga Settlement in any part of Nigeria.  Rather, the Engineers are currently constructing a military training facility at Igbo-Etiti Community of Udi Local Government Area, Enugu State. Upon completion, the facility will accommodate troops during training and aid to improve their efficiency in protecting law abiding citizens across the South East. Any counter narrative aired on the project is a malicious falsehood aimed at inciting the public against the Nigerian Army.

"Members of the public are therefore advised to disregard such untrue and false information emanating from this aforementioned media or any information source. The Nigerian Army remains a credible institution that unites the country and has no place for ethno-religious sentiments. We shall continue to carry out our constitutional tasks objectively across the country and remain totally apolitical," he stated.
