The Police Command in Ebonyi, has denied alleged media reports of clash between policemen and soldiers on Thursday in Abakaliki.
A section of the media had reported alleged clash between the police and soldiers around Udensi roundabout axis of Abakaliki, the Ebonyi capital.
The clash was as a result of impounding of tricycle allegedly belonging to an army personnel over alleged traffic light control violation.
The report alleged that it would have been a day of ‘blood’ in Abakaliki as police and soldiers engaged in a free for all, which was however averted following the timely intervention from very senior police personnel from the command .
But, DSP Loveth Odah, the command’s Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Abakaliki, described the report as shocking, spurious and misleading.
She said that at no time did police officers clash with men of the Nigerian Army in the state but explained that there was a little misunderstanding between a soldier and a traffic warden.
“There was no clash involving our officers and the army; there is no truth in the media report.
“It was not a clash; it was just a minor misunderstanding. A soldier’s brother or friend’s tricycle was impounded by a traffic warden on duty at the Udensi roundabout for alleged traffic light offence.
