Ebonyi: Gunmen Kill 2 Soldiers, One Civilian At Checkpoint by Wisdomkosi(m): 9:33am On Apr 27
Gunmen in white bus kill two soldiers, one civilian at checkpoint in Ebonyi

THERE seems to be uneasiness in Ebonyi State, following the shooting of two soldiers and a civilian at a checkpoint in the State.

The incident which occurred on Monday night, revealed that unknown gunmen shot the two soldiers and the civilian at a checkpoint on the Timber Junction area, in the Afikpo North Local Government Area of the state.

Those injured as a result of the incident were rushed to an undisclosed hospital for treatment while the deceased were deposited at the hospital.

The Vanguard gathered that the victims were attacked at about 8.48pm of the penultimate day as their riffles were reportedly carted away. Other soldiers at the Checkpoint ran inside the bush for safety.

A community source, who spoke to Vanguard on condition of anonymity, said the gunmen arrived the checkpoint in a white bus and as the military men stopped them for a search, they opened fire on them.

According to him, the situation threw the two busy towns of Amasiri and Afikpo into panic, as natives especially petty traders hurriedly packed their goods and went home.

“It’s a very sad situation here. They said it was people suspected to gunmen, who came to the checkpoint at Timber Shade (boundary Ehugbo and Amasiri) in white bus.

“As usual, it appeared the military were checking them and all of a sudden, they opened fire on them. Two of the military men, a man and woman, died. Others ran away.

“The area is as quiet as the graveyard. These bordering villages used to be very busy and people here are farmers and traders. But the moment that happened, people started going home. Nobody is seen outside as I speak to you. Every place is calm. There is fear here now. My brother, the world is about to end,” the source said.

A reliable security source confirmed the incident at the time of filing this report.

Vanguard gathered that the DPO of Afikpo North LGA is said to be aware of the incident but has not yet notified the Public Relations Department of the Ebonyi State Police Command.

This is coming barely 10 days after three policemen were shot dead by gunmen in the state.

Wat is all this rubbish na
Questions Igbos should ask themselves at this point
What did those Ipob guys said their aim Is? Protect igboland and ensure peace

What is the outcome since ESN was formed? Escalated bloodshed, insecurity, people fleeing their homes, apprehension everywhere.

Why is kanu still in UK instigating violence? Because he is afraid to come home for the fear of being killed

If he loves life then why is he pushing others to their death? because those obeying him reek of stupidity

Who stands to loose in all these things? IGBOS.

How? No peace, no conducive environment for commercial activities, no conducive environment for investors, Anarchy, kids will pull out of schools, massive suffering. Ariaria market will close up, onitsha market market, grounding of commercial activities

Wat of the politicians we think we are giving a hard time? They are enjoying themselves, they have houses overseas, money keep flowing even more into the face of unrest. An igbo adage says "Ala adi ghi mma bu uru ndi nze
How do northerner regions see this? They will be very happy that its not only their region is burning. U can't expect those who hate u to feel sad wen ur house is burning

Wat will happen in the long run? Innocent citizens will bear the brunt. Wen a region is in anarchy army will kill anybody they want and tag the person ESN and get away with it.. People will no longer be safe in their own homes, take a clue from borno state.

Wat Igbos should do? Stand vehemently and fight these ESN guys, stone them wherever u see them, let dem know they are not fighting for ur security.

As for herdsmen, we all arm ourselves ready to deal with them wen they come.

If you celebrated or kept quiet when soldiers were killing unarmed civilians. Don't come here to give unwarranted advice.

You just simply hate the fact that the people that you hate are finally fighting back.

I just called to confirm this news and it is true. Except that I was told it was 2 soldiers who lost their lives.

By the way, is IgbereTV ashamed to call IPOB/ESN what it is rather than "unknown Gunmen"?

Well, since Fulani herdsmen are "known Gunmen", the Government should tackle herdsmen only and allow these unknown gunmen to destroy the SE until they become known.

One thing about Fulani and Northern Nigerians is that they are very GREEDY.
It is no news that SE Akwa Ibom, Cross Rivers and now Rivers state is no longer within their reach going with the timeline of Unknown Gunmen activities.
Instead of accepting it, cutting them out and focus on people that can't fight them. People that are still scared of them. That is SW, Middle Belt and Bayelsa before they catch this fever and start resisting them as well.

BREAKING!!! Panic As Unknown Gunmen Kill 4 Soldiers In Ebonyi State

By Wisdom Nwedene, Abakaliki

A yet to be identified gunmen on Monday night killed four soldiers at a checkpoint in Ebonyi State, IGBERE TV has learnt.


Speaking with IGBERE TV correspondent on the condition of anonymity, a resident of the state said the ugly incident happened at Timber Junction area, in the Afikpo North Local Government Area.




According to our source, "we are afraid as these unknown gunmen shot sporadically before killing the soldiers".


"Some residents have fled the community as I'm speaking with you over fear of reprisal attack."

"They were attacked at about 8: 30 pm as their riffles were carted away by the unknown gunmen. Other soldiers at the Checkpoint ran inside the bush for safety."

As at the time of filing this report, efforts to speak with Ebonyi State Police Command proved abortive.

STAY WITH IGBERE TV. AFRICA'S NO1 COMMUNITY TV.

When Osama Bin Laden bombed the WTC and carried out many terrorist attacks in the US, their citizens didn't blame their President. For the 10 years it took to find him, Americans never once blamed their President but put the blame squarely on the terrorist. Here in Nigeria, we have a way of misappropriating blame, misappropriating our solutions and that is why we never find any true solution. We celebrate and glorify killers and own them as our own hence we defend them. Recently when one IPOB terrorist was killed some people said, "why didn't you kill your own terrorist, why are you killing our own terrorist"? They take full pride in and ownership of the evil people within their domain and that is why evil can never really go away. You want Nigeria to change but forget the change begins with you.
