Gunmen Invade Aba, Shoot Sporadically As Residents Scamper For Safety by Metrix147: 2:09pm On Apr 08
There was tension in the early hours of Thursday in Aba, the commercial nerve center of Abia State as unknown gunmen stormed the city, shooting sporadically as residents scampered for safety, ABN TV reports.

A police source told ABN TV that the shooting began around the College of Health Technology where signs of bullet shots were seen on the wall of the school.

The gunmen were said to have moved with their vehicles towards Ogbor Hill area of the city.

Their destination is however unknown.

Earlier, a team of SWAT police officers who had gone to effect arrest were attacked around Ariaria area of the city.

Unknown hoodlums were said to have resisted the arrest of a suspect whose name could not be ascertained as at the moment of this report.

Our correspondent gathered that one of the SWAT officers was shot and injured in the process.

The Area Commander in charge of the area was said to have called for reinforcement with about 50 policemen.

The hoodlums were eventually overpowered and the arrest effected.

[highlight]Every wise person will do his/her best to help in making Nigeria more peaceful (even if it's with your comments online). Do you know why? This is why: If Nigeria finally goes up in flames TODAY, we shall ALL suffer from the situation. I'm talking about EVERYONE who has anything to do with the country Nigeria.

DON'T THINK THAT YOU ARE TOO STRONG because EVEN LIONS DO DIE. The oppressors should also know that people who feel unjustly treated are often under-estimated. The underdogs have won many wars and matches.

Nothing can save Nigeria from breaking. It makes no sense continuing in a senseless marriage. North is already ravaged with killings, now the east are no longer warming up but already in action, west is already agitating Yoruba nation. While the country called Nigeria has no president. God, save your children from the negative unforeseen

The dullard is somewhere in UK enjoying large while gun men are attacking everywhere.

Doctors are on strike.

His wife launch a book today,he's not present.

Many students are still in the hands of their kidnappers.

The economy is crashing daily.

Prices of commodity keeps rising.

Bandits killing people daily in the North.

Isn't this man heartless?

Too all zombies that might quote me,not everyone who criticize your god is an Ipob.

You all just to daft to see reality on ground.

Do you really think that the people that are fuelling this and making provocative comments online are based in Nigeria?

Most of them are not based in Nigeria and they don't care what happens.

We're at war with the zoo.

We'll make Nigeria ungovernable for Buhari starting from destruction of Government properties in South East.

More prison to be break. we're all ESN, we're freedom fighters and we're proud of it.
Death to all sabo. God bless ohamadike, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. He's the best thing to have ever happened to us in Igbo land.


Those coward Yoruba Muslim can continue eating biscuits in Benin IDP camp, we pity those Yoruba Christians though.

In all, don't let us forget to always pay our monthly dues, that's the only way you can support this great movement if you can't participate physically.

we're ready to waste our life for Biafra, it's either Biafra or we all die. we're not coward
Very Good and apt reply to the charming rascal of a kid.
He was one of those singing thr praise of the animal call Cownu from inception, forgetting that we reasonable igbos still have mothers, grandmothers, families etc in the villages.
We told them to be careful what they wish for.
Here you have it.

Your words are so deep "Festacman".
ThatFairGuy1 (sorry for the typo, we see you and festacman as two of the few reasonable and sensible members we have on this forum, hence the typo cheesy ) Gbefun tins!
They are more than deep.....they are indeed deeper than deep!

It's well, I pity my brothers from the East their region going up in flames. Every right thinking Ibo should condemn this act of lawlessness and bloodletting. East gradually turning to another maiduguri. It's quite unfortunate.

Some Igbos have been aiding and abetting these hoodlums and N.Kanu in their secessionist agenda.
Now the chicken has come home to roost!
My sympathies go to all Easterners that have added their opposing voices to IPOB and it's shenanigans.

In as much as Goodluck didn't do much for east but there was peace and sense of inclusiveness in governance

But since Buhari came to power, his appointments has been Usman, Abubakar, Saliu, Mohammed, Danfodio

Even the west that supported him only has Vice president to boast of and a bed room promise of getting the power come 2023

Now tell me how there will be peace
