Seven Soldiers Killed In Clash With Unknown Gunmen In Abia Community, Houses Burnt

Soldiers of 14 Brigade, Army Headquarters, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan Barracks, who invaded Ohafia in the Ohafia Local Government of Abia State in search of gunmen suspected to be members of the Eastern Security Network (ESN), have burnt down several houses in the area.

A source who spoke with SaharaReporters on Sunday said a lot of residents and indigenes of Elu, Amangwu, Ebem and Ohafia fled their communities to neighbouring villages due to the constant invasion.

Seven soldiers have now lost their lives in the attack, the source said.

According to him, some unknown gunmen were passing through the Amangwu village when soldiers from the Goodluck Ebele Jonathan Barracks launched an attack.

He stated that in the counter-attack, two soldiers got injured while the unknown gunmen fled.

Infuriated, a mass of soldiers from the barracks invaded the town, shooting at people, and burning down houses.

Provoked, residents and indigenes who could no longer bear the constant attacks, shot back and this has led to the death of seven soldiers.

The source said, “Some unknown gunmen, we don't know who they are or where they are coming from, they were passing through Amangwu and they were confronted by soldiers from the Goodluck Ebele Jonathan Barracks. Two of the soldiers later got injured and were rushed to the hospital.

“But the soldiers went to regroup and came back en masse. They started harassing people in the community, most especially young men. They arrested a lot of young men, they took them to the barracks.

“They also come from time to time to shoot at people, I mean direct shooting so the people had to retaliate. At first, three soldiers died, then four of them died yesterday, making seven. The other two that were attacked by the gunmen were not even killed, they got injured.

“We don't know why the soldiers keep invading Amangwu, the gunmen are not from here, they just passed through this place. Soldiers should leave Amangwu and its people alone.”

He also stated that a lot of houses in the Amangwu Ohafia community had been burnt.

The soldiers had claimed that members of the ESN were using the houses as their hideout.

Brothers, take responsibility.

This is the last of the last days. Everywhere we run to, there is civil unrest. Man's government has proven that it cannot solve our problems.


We need that kingdom to come.

May God be with the guiltless.

When Solomon transgressed against God, God raised adversaries and tore up his kingdom.

@ all the useless and foolish BMC zombies and their counterparts who are known cowards....

This is the angle that i am truly afraid of...

The day the whole Youth of South east Align with ESN (Which is happening rather quickly) ...NO BODY CAN STOP THE FURY.

KEEP BEING FOOLISH BY POSTING PINSURES ONLINE TO CREATE ..a scenario where easterners will "back-down"...

KEEP TELLING YOUNG EASTERNERS THAT "WE THE SS AINT BIAFRA"


KEEP TELLING THE YOUTH THAT IGBO ARE DOMINATING WHEREAS "FULANI" AND OTHER northerners OWN ALL THE OIL WELLS AND EMPLOYMENT SLOTS IN THE OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY.

KEEP TELLING DEM THAT IGBO ARE THIEVES AND SELFISH..

BUT BE REST ASSURED THAT ...THE PROBLEM THAT IS BREWING WILL MAKE NIGERIAN ARMY/POLICE LOOK LIKE YAHOO BOYZ... grin

READ THIS S HIGHLIGHTED PART AND UNDERSTAND THAT ..YOUNG EASTERN YOUTH ARE GETTING SERIOUSLY RESTIVE.






Another eyewitness who spoke to IgbereTV on condition of anonymity said "Soldiers are collecting it very hot. This report is being downplayed by the media. Right now, not less than 17 soldiers have been gunned down by unknown gunmen, who got winds of the siege in Ohafia by soldiers."

"The soldiers came in their numbers to arrest innocent youths but youths blocked all the exit routes with heavy logs of tree at several places, preventing the military men from leaving, then, Unknown gunmen speedily arrived at the scene and engaged soldiers in hot gun duel killing about 10 soldiers at the time. When re-enforcement team of soldiers from Ohafia military barracks enter the scene unknown gunmen have already separated into two, the other group engaged the re-enforcement team neutralizing about 8 soldiers making it 18. Then soldiers retreated

There is nothing like The Nigerian Army anymore.
What we have terrorizing people in the east is called The fulani Garrisons!
The difference between these guys in uniform and their brothers that cut people open all over the place in the dead of the night is the uniform!
Otherwise, it's the same people, the same mentality and the same modus operandi..

Cowards. They burnt their market.

They shot at peaceful unknown Gunmen assumed to be defending their land against Herdsmen

I am very sure that not less than 10 nigeria stupid soldiers (weaklings) where sent to God for judgement not 2 Stand up against these idiots, and see them run like Chickens they are. Gallant indeed.

Please, kill whoever that comes to kill you, Mosaic law was not removed from the bible and the Bible is the true word of God



This is what I call co-ordinated military tactics. The zoo doesn't know what will be fall them soon, on their dying bed, they will look at the sky and cry to their head slamming Terrorist God for deliverance, but the Terrorist will shit right inside their mouth and mock their stupidity for fighting against the Children of the most high

Nonsense ranting, u're here beating chest online not knowing what will befall on u but expecting something to miraculously happen to salvage ur fatally invited destruction.
That idiot god u kept calling never exist if he can't save the village from the wrath of the disaster they invited on themselves.
Pretentious, crime prone, the most untrustworthy people always hiding behind helpless god to spit nonsense!

This report collaborates what a friend from that area told me on whatsapp yesterday, so many soldiers were killed in that gun battle yesterday, lots of civilians have moved out of Amangwu and other neighboring communities.

MISTAKES OF BUHARI....

BUHARI HAS MADE AN IGBO MAN TO SEE THOSE TERRORIST IN THE UNIFORM AS THERE ENEMIES...

BUHARI HAS SHOWED TO THE WORLD HOW HE HATED THE IGBOS

BUHARI THREATENED THE IGBOS WITH GENOCIDE

BUHARI CALLED THE IGBOS A DOT

BUHARI DIDN'T CONDEMNED THE FULANIS KILLING IN IGBO LAND

BUHARI HAS PUSHED THE IGBOS TO THE WALL...

MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS, BUHARI HAS MADE AN IGBO MAN TO KNOW THAT GUN IS THE ONLY THING THAT MAKES SOMEONE TO BE THE SAME WITH A MILITARY MAN

DON'T FORGET IF ANY INNOCENT IGBO MAN IS KILLED, THE RELATIVE WILL HAVE NO OPTION TO PAY BACK BY GETTING A GUN...

THINK IF THE OHAFIA YOUTH WILL GET A GUN TO PROTECT THEMSELVES, THE UGM WILL KEEP INCREASING...

BUHARI HAS MADE A MISTAKE BY USING A VIOLENCE TO FIGHT AN INNOCENT MAN....


YES I KNOW THE SOLDIERS WILL COME BACK TO FIGHT THE OHAFIA PEOPLE, THEY WILL ONLY KILL THE INNOCENT PEOPLE AND TAG THEM UGM, AFTER THAT THEY FORGET THAT THE INNOCENT PEOPLE THEY WILL KILL HAS A RELATIVE.... NO ONE WILL WISH TO DIE IN HIS LAND AS A SLAVE... IS BETTER YOU DIE WITH A TEN SOLDIERS HEAD BECAUSE THEY ARE NOW THE ENEMIES OF THE IGBOS....



MR PRESIDENT TAKE MY ADVISE BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE SEND THOSE YOUR MILITARY OUT FROM IGBO LAND.... THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO SETTLE ISSUES NOT WITH VIOLENCE...


GOD WILL CONTINUE TO BLESS THE UGM AND GUILD THEM, AMEN!

Really feel for our Igbo people who 80% of those bearing the brunt of these attacks are innocent folks. I can't expect such happening in the NE and the NW politicians would be quiet bout it like Nothing is really happening. little wonder the igbos din join us in the protest

We southerners really have a long way to go, our division has been our greatest doom rather than good and some dumbskull on here nitwit would come and mock Yorubas, some sect would be mocking the Igbos. tbh y'all should just get a life. as a Yoruba man if there's any injustice against against any region in the SS or SE it should be my concern but we're just not like that I don't just know why
