In a statement issued yesterday at Awka, Col. Sagir Musa, the Deputy Director Army Public Relations of the 82 Division of the country Army denied the accusation, claiming that he investigated the accusation and the outcome shows that it was a false allegation.
The statement reads: “It is the same position that this rejoinder has soundly adopted.
The attention of Headquarters 82 Division Nigerian Army has again been drawn to an unjustified and over flogged accusation, this time, by the Campaign for Democracy (CD) of Mass killings of Igbo Youths by the Nigerian Army.”
“For emphasis and clarity, the Nigerian Army as an accountable, morally and professionally sound organisation had variously through its human rights desk at the army headquarters, painstakingly investigated allegations of rights violations and the results indicated specifically that this claim is false, malicious and should therefore, be ignored for the sake of Nigeria.”
Col. Musa therefore called on the International Criminal Court (ICC), United States and United Nations (UN) to pay attention to the situation, especially the pro-Biafran Groups in the country.
