Gunmen Attack Ebonyi Community, Shoot One

Confirming the incident, the Commander of the Ebubeagu Security Outfit, Mr. Friday Nnanna, said the attackers were not members of the Indigenous People of Biafra but mere hoodlums who invaded the market to rob traders of their belongings.

He said, “What happened was that some boys invaded the Nwakpu market to rob traders. They (gunmen) are not members of IPOB. This is because they (gunmen) came into the market with locally-made pistols.

“Ebubeagu is on ground to arrest those boys because we know the clothes they (the gunmen) are wearing, and so, we are after them.

“We are on track to get them. We are putting on our searchlight on them to arrest them. From now till tomorrow, we will apprehend them.”

Also, when contacted, the Commissoner for Police in Ebonyi State, Aliyu Garba, said he was in transit and could not respond to our Correspondent’s inquiry.

A splinter group of the Indigenous People of Biafra had last Friday, announced there would be a sit-at-home between December 9 and 14, 2022, warning that anyone seen outside during this period will be killed.

But IPOB, through its spokesman, Emma Powerful, had since distanced itself from the said sit-at-home order, saying the idea was anti-people and negated its principle.
