Unknown Gunmen Attack Soldiers In Aba, Abia, Set Tank Ablaze by Moneydoll: 2:07pm On Apr 08, 2022
Soldiers on patrol in Aba, Friday morning, came under attack by unknown gunmen who set ablaze a military tank after an early morning raid.

The incident occurred while the soldiers were on patrol.

An eyewitness account has it that the gunmen laid ambush for the unsuspecting soldiers on patrol.

According to the source, the soldiers were ambushed at the popular Tonimass Junction, Osisioma axis, on the Enugu-Aba-Port Harcourt Expressway.

At the time of filing this report, it was not clear if there were any casualties.

Meanwhile, the incident has caused tension and apprehension across the commercial city as residents now live in fear of the unknown.

A military source at the 14 Brigade Ohafia confirmed the attack to Vanguard. But the source who pleaded for anonymity as he was not officially permitted to speak to the press said no casualties were recorded by the soldiers.

He said that contrary to social media reports, three soldiers were not killed in the attack.

The source said the military would certainly go after the attackers but added that no arrests had so far been made.

He appealed to members of the public with any useful information about the whereabouts of the hoodlums to volunteer same to the Army or security agencies.

The source condemned attacks on security agents, saying such barbaric acts are unwarranted.

” The soldiers you are attaching today can be the ones to save you tomorrow. They are also your brothers”, the military source lamented.

A lot of people mostly Igbos are refusing to understand that Igbo hatred is real.

Several persons are doing everything to destabilise Southeast just to prove a point.

Their agenda is to send in Soldiers to start burning houses, rendering elderly women and children homeless.

They want to do everything to create IDP camps in Southeast.

Dey don curse large numbers of yeebos following cownu. See as this werey dey praise UGM but when they tag them as ipob, people like this oloriburuku would deny them being ipob. That ipob isn't a violent organization.

Many soldiers were actually killed? This killing of security agents must stop. As Christians, we can forgive those that offended us. I believe in forgiveness because I sin everyday and God still forgive my sins. Let bygone be bygone and let us forgive.

Good, FG in question is in far away Abuja. As we speak now, everyone in Abuja is going about their normal business. They will be eating their roasted fish and Hero this evening. They will sleep very well this night, but you have with you people who are violent with blood in their eyes. Trust me, they can kill for any reason, because it is now a hobby. The day there is no Soldier to kill, they will face you. The day they want to exercise the power of the barrel, it will be on your head their. Keep hailing them, thinking that they are winning wars for you.

Learn from the past, Bakasi boys were being hailed for what they were doing until they got tired and wanted to use their gun and power for side hustle. Go and asked what they metamorphosed into. Be careful what you praise, that's how it starts. Ask those in the North, unfortunately we do not study patterns and history, that's why we are as risked of being two-times victims.

The killings are just too much, it is becoming unnecessary and a roll back to stone age. The soldiers are human too and have families

Hmmmm sooner or later ipob will regret their actions.

They will realize that kanu has brought curses on them than blessings.

Very soon North East will be more peaceful than southeast.

What is really really happening? Can't security agencies track all these UGM?
Why must they wait for d UGM to attack first before they would start arresting innocent people?
Who are these UGM?
Does it that they don't hv a base?
I don't just understand how and why we got here.
East : UGM
North: boko, heads en and bandits
West: skullarship and organ harvesting
S/South: kidnapping and cultism.
