At least two soldiers reportedly k+lled by unknown gunmen enforcing sit-at-home order in Abia State

There is palpable tension in Aba, Abia State as some gunmen enforcing the sit-at-home order of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) reportedly engaged soldiers at Obikabia Junction in a shootout, Sahara Reporters is reporting.

It is reported that two soldiers were k+lled by the enforcers of the sit-at-home order but the military and the police have not confirmed this.

The hoodlums also b¥rnt a military patrol vehicle and some shops in the area.
Although, it could not be immediately ascertained whether anyone di£d in the shootout, videos of the incident seen on Thursday morning show a lone soldier armed with a rifle running to hide in a shop as their patrol van burns.

A voice in one of the videos says, “This Army man is the only surviving person here. He was the only person that ran away. He was the only person that ran away. Jesus!” In another video of the incident, no fewer than nine gunmen are seen sh%oting and pursuing soldiers at a junction. The gunmen dressed in w+r gear drove in a convoy of SUVs.

“I’m hearing gunshots within Obikabia axis of waterside and someone just called me now to affirm it,” an eyewitness told SaharaReporters. When the Abia State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Maureen Chinaka, was contacted, she confirmed the att+ck but referred Sahara Reporters to the military for more information.

When contacted, the Army spokesperson in 14 Brigade Command in Ohafia, Abia State, Lt. Prince Innocent Omale, confirmed the att+ck but did not provide details.
He said: “We got the information and we are preparing to go there as we speak. I cannot tell you whether anybody was k+lled or not until we get there and ascertain what happened and how it happened. But our men are moving there right now.”
