The Acting Director of Defence Information, Brigadier General Onyeama Nwachukwu in a statement said that the Defence Headquarters was notified of a video trending on social media indicating that trucks and other similar vehicles conveying agricultural products from the North, heading towards the southern part of the country were being prevented and turned back along Kaduna – Jebba road by some unscrupulous elements.
“The Defence Headquarters wishes to clarify that following the tension generated by the incident, joint troops comprising the military and other security agencies were deployed to clear the Jebba – Kaduna road
and have since restored normalcy in the general area. There is currently a free flow of traffic along the axis.
“Members of the public, commuters and residents are pleased urged to go about their normal businesses. This is also to give a stern warning to any unscrupulous group or persons who are aiming at disrupting legitimate economic and commercial activities by preventing the free flow of traffic and movement of goods
in a bid to generate clashes along ethnic divides to desist from such unpatriotic acts or face the wrath of the law”.
General Nwachukwu further urged the public to promptly report anyone found engaged in such atrocious activities to security operatives.
