Hoodlums Storm Abia Community, Raid And Destroy Houses

Hoodlums Storm Abia Community, Raid And Destroy Houses

Information reaching us say a number of hoodlums on Monday invaded Okoko and Amaokwe villages of Item community in the Bende Local Government Area of Abia State, shooting indiscriminately in the air.

Though nobody was killed, cars, houses, and other valuables were destroyed.

It was gathered that the hoodlums pretended to enforce the Monday stay-at-home on behalf of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and went to the community market square, Eke-Nta, in Okoko Item, where they shot without purpose, causing tension among residents who fled for their lives.

It was, however, not clear if the invasion had to do with the enforcement of sit-at-home order, which had since been suspended by the proscribed IPOB.

The cancellation had made residents gathered for their normal businesses were forced to close shops but the hoodlums later headed to Amaokwe Item and left through the Item-Igbere exit route.

There is no confirmation from the Police nor a reaction from them so far.
