MUST READ:The Nigerian Army Defense, still insists that the shiites are making false claims.

The Nigerian Army defense,  has made it clear that, a convoy from the Army Headquarters Garrison Abuja was conducting a routine shipment of ammunition and missiles to a military formation in Kaduna escorted by troops when they ran into the protesters at Zuba in FCT.

The protesting Shi’ites prevented the convoy from proceeding on its mission but rather attempted to overrun the escorts to cart away the shipment. Hence, the troops had to protect the goods and extricate themselves from the imminent mob action by applying minimum force.

So the Defence Headquarters has decided   to respond to Amnesty International (AI), reports in which the group alleged that the Nigerian military and the police engaged in horrific use of excessive force that led to the killing of members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN).

The further  emphasized for the umpteenth time that, the narratives of the AI are outright falsehoods and calculated attempts at whipping up sentiments and misleading unsuspecting Nigerians as well as demoralizing friendly nations.The casualty of IMN stands at 4 wounded and 3 dead at Zuba while at the Nyanya - Mararaba road checkpoint, 3 died with 3 wounded. 

More so, that the military also had 6 of its personnel seriously wounded and currently at intensive care.The IMN also had another confrontation with the military at a popular checkpoint along Nyanya - Mararaba road leading into the FCT.  

Explaining, that those living in or transiting the FCT knows that the military checkpoint had been established since 2014 after the BHT attack on Nyanya Motor Park.

Let us know your view on this,  kindly share
