Awka — Anambra State Governor Willie Obiano has refuted alleged movement of arms from the North to the state.
He was reacting to report on the social media that arms were found inside a vehicle from the north loaded with yams and tomatoes in Nnewi.
Speaking at the weekend during the Golden Jubilee of the Bishop on the Niger, Dr. Owen Nwokolo in Bascillica of St Andrews Anglican church, Onitsha, Obiano described the report as 'bloody falsehood.'
"Immediately I got the information around 12.30am, because I don't joke with such issues whether rumor or not, I ordered the track team of the joint service as well as the bomb disposal experts to invade Otolo Nnewi. Within 12.30 to 3.00am, I was directing the operations. I ordered that they bring down everything from the truck and search all the tomatoes and yams, until they confirmed that the truck was free of ammunition," he stated.
