ATTACK ON ORDINARY CIVILIANS IS BARBARIC

ATTACK ON ORDINARY CIVILIANS IS BARBARIC

There was tension in Abia State yesterday as soldiers laid siege to the Afaraukwu country home of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, and clashed with members of his group leading to the alleged death of 15 persons.

It was learnt that the soldiers arrived in the community yesterday barely 48 hours after the clash between them and IPOB members on Sunday evening.

The return of the soldiers with about 10 armoured personnel carriers (APCs) and seven Hilux vans caused panic in the area, forcing shop owners to close immediately. Some of the soldiers also invaded the Abia State Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists on Aba Road, Umuahia, and destroyed laptops and other valuables. According to journalists at the secretariat, the soldiers claimed they saw somebody taking photographs of them from the building.

The Chairman of Council, Mr. John Emejor, who confirmed the incident, said a national officer of the union, Ezeogo Bonny Okoro was slapped by one of the soldiers.

“Our stand is that those involved in this attack on innocent journalists should be fished out and punished in line with the constitution of the country,”
I hope those who support the brutality of the Nigeria Army heard what happened yesterday involvement in gross human rights violations the more those in charge of command and control are allowing the lower ranks to unleash violence on civilians for simply belonging to a group such as IPOB which bears no arms but simply brandishes flags… this is barbaric and primitive
