Amidst the sit-at-home order declared by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to commemorate Biafran Heroes’ Day, two soldiers were allegedly killed by unknown gunmen in Aba, Abia State.

The attackers, arriving in a Sienna bus and a black SUV, fired sporadically at military trucks, resulting in the soldiers’ deaths and the burning of their vehicles.

 This incident highlights the violent enforcement of the sit-at-home order and raises questions about the methods used to honor Biafra’s history by the this miscreants who have continued to trend on terror attack in the South East region of the country.

According to video clips obtained by THE WHISTLER show about 15 masked gunmen arriving in a Sienna bus and a black SUV, attacking two military trucks, and firing sporadically at the army officers. The incident occurred at the popular Obikabia Junction in Ogborhill, Aba, Abia State, reportedly resulting in the deaths of the soldiers.

An unidentified voice in the recorded clip exclaimed, “Jesus Christ! The soldiers have been shot dead. They want to set their truck ablaze.” The attackers subsequently set the two military trucks on fire. Sources speaking to THE WHISTLER confirmed that at least two soldiers died in the attack.

Attempts to obtain a response from the Police Public Relations Officer for Abia State Command, ASP Maureen Chinaka, were unsuccessful at the time of reporting. A source who wished to remain anonymous told THE WHISTLER, “I have just been called by my people in Aba that some people in a Sienna Bus opened fire and killed two soldiers at Obikabia Junction in Ogborhill Aba and also burnt their vehicle at the junction there. Reprisals will surely follow. Is wanton murder the way to commemorate May 30th?”

A fifth video clip showed military reinforcements arriving after the attackers had fled the scene.

It is noteworthy that the secessionist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra, had declared May 30, 2024, a sit-at-home in memory of Biafra. According to Britannica.com, “On May 30, 1967, Ojukwu declared the secession of the three states of the Eastern region under the name of the Republic of Biafra, which Nigeria’s federal government interpreted as an act of rebellion.”
