Suspected IPOB Gunmen Kill Four Soldiers In Rivers State by ManirBK: 10:29am On Apr 27
The soldiers, attached to an oil company for an escort duty, were killed by men believed to be IPOB

Four Nigerian soldiers were killed on Sunday by suspected IPOB gunmen in a community in Rivers State, Nigeria’s South-south, in one of the most daring incidents in the ongoing vicious attacks on security agencies in the region, as well as in the South-east.

The attack occurred at about 11:30 p.m. in a hotel, Edibe Hotel, in Abua- Odual Local Government Area of the state where the soldiers, attached to an oil company, Starling Global Ltd, were on an escort duty, a source familiar with the incident told PREMIUM TIMES, Monday.

The soldiers were drawn from 16 Brigade Garrison, 6 Division, in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

One of the soldiers sustained gunshot wounds, while five others were unhurt in the attack which the source said took the soldiers by surprise.

The gunmen are alleged to be members of IPOB, a pro-Biafra group that has been proscribed by the Nigerian government.

The suspected IPOB gunmen, during the attack, stole five rifles and a pick-up truck belonging to the Nigerian Army.

The chief security officer of Starling Global Ltd is said to be missing since after the attack.

PREMIUM TIMES could not immediately get the army’s reaction on the incident, as the spokesperson for the 6 Division, Charles Ekeocha, a major, did not respond to calls and a text message from our reporter.

Starling Global Ltd did not also respond to calls from this newspaper.

IPOB Attacks on security agents getting worse

There is concern by government officials, security experts, and ordinary Nigerians that the ongoing attacks on security agencies in the South-east and South-south, which appeared to be coordinated, is getting worse by the day, and has already worsened the security challenges in the two regions.

Apart from the killing in Abua- Odual, soldiers were said to be among eight security officials killed on Sunday by gunmen along the Omagwa/Isiokpo/Elele Owerri Road in Rivers State.

In Imo State, Nigeria’s South-east, gunmen suspected to be IPOB members attacked and set ablaze the country home of the state governor, Hope Uzodinma.

Fake news.

The whole world should disregard this fake news sponsored by Yoruba media against the Igbo nation.

Ipob is a peaceful organization worldwide unlike amotekun that kills the citizens.
the news is authentic by authentic news paper but you will believe it if the news says suspected fulani bandits!

Fake news. IPOB is a peaceful secessionist group that only carries Biafra flag to protest. Nigerian Army should look for who's killing them.

Besides they have killed ESN Commander who was armed to fight against terrorism so there is no more armed wing of IPOB.

this makes me wonder if we even have a president in this country . upon every thing that has been going on Buhari has never for once addressed the issue on national TV or press or even give us some assurance . infact the best thing one can do right now is to leave this country . because if you think Nigeria will get better you might be next in line to get killed just like these soldiers that didn't know they would die today .

They claim to fighting Bandits but they constantly kill security operatives that protect citizens, IPOB has killed more igbo people(policemen)than Fulani terrorists
