The Member representing Ebonyi/Ohaukwu Federal Constituency of Ebonyi State, Eze Nwachukwu Eze, has declared that no Agila Indigene was assaulted in Ngbo, his community by an alleged group of boys from the area.

Eze made the disclosure in a rebuttal against a publication by an online news medium which pointed out that the incident occurred at the popular Okwor Market, in Ngbo.

The lawmaker warned the author of the report to steer clear of his area and desist from any act that will disrupt the existing peace in the area.

‘My attention and that of the Ngbo people have been drawn to the unwarranted, frivolous and fictitious report that a man from Agila in Ado LGA of Benue was beaten by a group of boys from Ngbo at the Okwor Market.

‘This report is capable of throwing the areas into serious tension and I call on our people and the Agila people to disregard the publication.

‘Nothing like that happened on the alleged day at the Okwor Market.  Agila people in their numbers were seen trading and buying wares.’

In another report, President Bola Tinubu and the Ebonyi State Governor, Francis Nwifuru yesterday inaugurated three newly constructed Tertiary Education TrustFund projects in the state university (EBSU).

The projects are; ICT complex (2012-2015) merged annual intervention, Faculty of Education (2016-2019) merged annual intervention and Library Complex (2012-2015) merged annual intervention.
