The Nigerian Arny has dismissed as fake, a report by SaharaReporters that the military attacked the camp of Eastern Security Network, ESN in Aba, killing no fewer than 16 personnel of the security outfit, OHAFIA-TV News has learnt.
Assistant Director Army Public Relations, 14 Brigade Ohafia, Captain Iliya Dauda told Vanguard Correspondent in Aba that there was no military operation against any ESN camp in Abia.
He rather explained that unknown gunmen attacked an Army checkpoint at Osisioma junction Aba but were repelled.
He said there were no casualties on the part of the Army but begged for more time to receive report from their men at the scene investigating and assessing the incident.
The Army Spokesman urged members of the public to disregard the said report which he insisted was a pure falsehood.
