Abia denies link with arms dealers

By Anayo Okoli 

ABIA State government says it has no dealing with arms dealers, just as  it challenged those in Enugu who claimed that they supplied arms to the government to come up with genuine proof.

The government was reacting to an allegation by some Aba-based arms dealers that they supplied arms to the government through an official. The suspects were paraded before journalists in Enugu by the General Officer Commanding (GOC), 82 Division, Enugu, Major General Mohammed Isah.

According to Governor Theodore Orji’s Media Adviser on Electronic Media, Ugochukwu Emezue, the attempt by the arrested persons to rope in one of the governor’s aides was a calculated attempt to embarrass the state government.
