Youths of Isuofia in Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State on Friday protested alleged laying of Cables suspected to be for the controversial 5G Technology Network in the community.

According to TheNation, the protest came following a statement credited to leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, alleging laying of 5G Technology Network Cables in the State while residents were compelled to observe stay-at-home over coronavirus pandemic.

A resident of the area, who preferred anonimity, said the youths had confronted the firm, warning the exercise would put their lives at risk.

He said the officials of the company whose identity could not be acertained as there was no inscription on their equipment, denied the allegation, claiming they were installing a 4G Technology Network Cable.

The Nation however learnt that the youths insisted they must stop work and leave the community for peace to reign.

Reacting, traditional Minister of the Community, Chief Ndubisi Osele, blamed the protest on misinformation.

“Some miscreants misinformed the youths in the community that 5G Technology Network is being installed in the community.

 

“What is being laid under ground is Fiber Cables not 5G Network, 5G Technology Network is a band placed on the Mast, it is not laid under the ground.

“We are having a meeting now to resolve the matter and I will like you to call me back in an hour’s time, so you can get the decision of the community.”

But the community leader did not get back to the reporter as at the time of filing this report.
