Gunmen Sunday night reportedly killed one soldier, injured another soldier and a policeman in multiple attacks at Owaza in Ukwa West Local Government Area and Aba, in Aba South LGA.
The soldiers attached to 144 Brigade, the Nigerian Army, Asa, were on duty at Owaza when the gunmen attacked, killing one of them and injuring another.
The gunmen were alleged to have carted away the soldiers’ riffles.
A military source who confirmed the attack and death of the soldier, disclosed that the injured officer was receiving medical attention at an undisclosed medical facility in Rivers State.
In a related development, gunmen numbering about 15 on the same night at a police checkpoint on Azikiwe Road, Aba, attacked some policemen on duty.
While the hoodlums were said to have inflicted one of the police officers with severe machete cuts, two of the men of the underworld were gunned down by the police who overpowered them.
According to a police source who spoke on the condition of anonymity as he was not supposed to speak with the press, said the injured policeman was receiving medical attention at Aba General Hospital.
Abia state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Geoffrey Ogbonna, said the police have arrested a suspect who has been helping them in investigation.
ENDSARS: Okezie Ikpeazu On The Run As Nnamdi Kanu Orders For His Capture
END-SARS: Okezie Ikpeazu On The Run As Nnamdi Kanu Orders For His Capture “Okezie Ikpeazu is in Asaga village Ohafia. He is hiding in the…
Okezie Ikpeazu is in Asaga village Ohafia. He is hiding in the house of his Chief of Staff, one Ukpai Agwu Ukpai. Our youths in Ohafia are hereby instructed to capture him alive to face trial for the numerous murders he committed including the death of protesters yesterday in Aba. On no account must he be allowed to leave Ohafia alive. It’s an order.”
This was according to a quote released by the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra [IPOB], Mazi Nnamdi Kanu ordering the protesters in the state capital of Abia State to capture the governor of Abia State, Okezie Ikpeazu. The statement was released today, October 21, 2020.
Nnamdi Kanu’s statement come amidst indications that the ENDSARS protests might have the blessings of the leader of IPOB – citing his earlier broadcast were he made bold pronouncements about an October 2020 shutdown of Nigeria.
In Abia State, the activities of the ENDSARS protesters appears to have been ramped up recently following the altercations in Lagos.
Two police officers were said to be killed following the firing of life bullets by the police officers in Aba. The protesters did not show fear or retreat from their forward positions as a result of the gunshots from the police officers. Rather, the protesters approached the police with determined intensity. The police took to their heels.
The protesters then took to the streets with boldness.
Current Situation Of Osisioma Junction Aba, Abia State
As this situation is like this, both the indigenes and the none indigenes are suffering the situation. On daily basis, the condition of the place is worsening and the place is becoming a danger to the lives of people.
My questions are – Is the government of Abia State not seeing this? Is there no governor again in Abia State or do he chose to be mute on this ? Is this not part of his campaign promises? Why are they risking the lives of Abians and people living there in? Is it when lives will be lost that they will do something about this situation? What are those who voted for the governor really benefiting from him? These questions lies on the desk of the governor and his cohorts to answer.
For me, it could be more better if there is no governor in that state so that an individual whom this touches can even volunteer himself to do something about this . This simply means that “THERE IS A HUGE FIREWOOD AND YET PEOPLE ARE SUFFERING FROM COLD” Okezie Ikpeazu you should do something about this place and other places that needed your attention in Abia State please before it’s too late. You enjoy the ones taken care of by people in the western world and when you come back to your own place, you choose to sit on the mud/ dustbin, very sad indeed!.
