The Nigerian Army has refuted the ‘mass killing of Igbo youths’ allegation by the Campaign for Democracy (CD), an online publication recently.

He said the CD claimed that “no fewer than 2000 Igbo youths had been killed by the Nigerian Army under the guise of Rules of Engagement’’.
He said that other publication allegations including ‘Military Killed 150 Pro-Biafra Protesters’ had also been severally thoroughly refuted in many media platforms by the Nigerian Army.
“It is the same position that this rejoinder has soundly adopted.
