Army denies building RUGA settlements in South/East

The 82 Division of the Nigerian Army has debunked the allega­tion that it is constructing Ruga settle­ment at Igbo-Etiti community in Enugu state.

This was contained in a press statement made avail­able to journalists in Enugu on Wednesday by Abuba­kar Abdullahi Major, Act­ing Deputy Director Army Public Relations.

He said “Nigerian Army has noted with utmost con­cern, a baseless allegation aired through an outlawed online radio that the Divi­sion of the Nigerian Army is currently constructing a Ruga Settlement at Igbo-Eti­ti community of Udi Local Government Area, Enugu State.

“Though this inciting broadcast emanates from a source bereft of any credi­bility whatsoever, there is 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 ethnoreligious sentiments. We shall con­tinue to carry out our con­stitutional tasks objectively across the country and re­main apolitical,” he said.
