Army Hqtrs Dismiss Allegations of Attack on Zakzaky’S Convoy as Baseless & Unfounded

Authorities of Army headquarters yesterday in Abuja debunked a report which emanated from the Media Forum of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria alleging that soldiers attacked Shaikh Ibraheem Zakzaky’s convoy in Abuja.
A statement in this regard signed by the Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Col. Sani Usman said, “The attention of Nigerian Army has been drawn to a press statement issued by one Ibrahim Usman of Media Forum of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, purportedly on behalf of the Shiite Islamic group today”.
“One could have dismissed the unfounded allegations leveled against the Nigerian Army in that release, but for the fact that they were baseless, unfounded and capable of misleading the public. It became imperative to set the record straight”.
“For the avoidance of doubt, today at about 10.00am along Abuja-Kaduna road, soldiers sighted a convoy of 6 cars passing through a military checkpoint and when asked to stop, they vehemently refused. Their refusal made the unit concerned to activate various patrols into action with a view to establishing their identity, destination and motive”.
