Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu,Acting Director Defence Information, who signed the press release said troops reacted quickly by rescuing the situation and restoring normalcy.

There is currently free flow of traffic along the axis.
“Members of the public, commuters and residents are please 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 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.
Members of the public are also urged to promptly report anyone found engaged in such atrocious activities to security operatives.”
