Two soldiers feared dead as gunmen enforce sit-at-home in Abia

Two soldiers have been reportedly killed by unknown gunmen enforcing the sit-at-home order on Thursday.

The military men were attacked at Obikabia junction in Aba, Abia State, by over 15 masked gunmen who also set their patrol van on fire.

A trending video shows the assailants shooting sporadically before setting the military van ablaze.

DAILY POST reports that a soldier later emerged, with a voice accompanying the video lamenting that “it’s like he is the only one that survived; others have been killed.”

The gunmen operated with an SUV jeep and a Sienna.

The Abia State Police Command and the Military have not spoken on the reported incident as of the time of filing this report.

South-East is under lockdown following the declaration of sit-at-home by Biafra agitators in honour of those who died during the Civil war.

Our correspondents across the five states report that the majority of the residents are indoors for fear of being attacked by non-state actors.
