The Nigerian Army says it is not constructing Ruga settlement at Igbo-Etiti community of Udi Local Government Area of Enugu State or any part of Nigeria, but a training facility for its troops.

The Acting Deputy Director, Army Public Relations, 82 Division, Enugu, Maj. Abubakar Abdullahi, made the disclosure in a statement yesterday.

The statement said that, “the 82 Division 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 between Ochima and Affa in Igbo-Etiti and Udi Local Government Areas, Enugu State”.

The statement 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 between Ochima and Affa in Igbo-Etiti and Udi Local Government Areas, 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”, the statement further said.

Concluding, the NA advised “members of the public to disregard such untrue and false information emanating from this aforementioned media or any information source. It said 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”.
