Published by admin on

According to Daily Post, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, representing Abia South Senatorial District, has firmly denied reports suggesting he was humiliated by soldiers at an Army checkpoint in Obingwa. In a statement issued by his media aide, Uchenna Awom, on Sunday, Abaribe dismissed these claims as false and urged the public to disregard such misleading information.

The senator praised the Nigerian Army for their professionalism in dealing with civilians, countering the narrative of any disrespectful encounter. Abaribe clarified that at no point was he accosted or delayed by the soldiers, describing his interaction with them as respectful and commendable despite the challenging circumstances of the day.

Abaribe questioned the motives behind the false reports, highlighting the speculative nature and inaccuracies contained within. He refuted claims that he sought intervention from the State Governor, labeling the entire story as a fabrication.

He said: “I was never accosted, delayed or approached in a disrespectful manner by the soldiers. My observation at the point was that of a professional force carrying out their duty in a most humane and respectful manner, despite the ugly events of the day.

“So, one wonders the motive of the author of the jaundiced and highly speculative report even to the conjecture from the said writer to have overheard me calling the State governor to intervene and also heard the reported negative reaction from the Governor. It nothing but a tissue of lies.
