An Abia State-based journalist and publisher, Prince Clinton Ubah has lamented the killing of four soldiers by gunmen enforcing the sit-at-home order declared by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Thursday to mark ‘Biafra Heroes Day’.
The soldiers who were trying to enforce law and order in the city as a result of the lockdown, were reportedly killed by the gunmen at the Obikabia Junction in Aba, during an exchange of gunfire.
After killing the soldiers, they assailants also set fire to their vehicles.
Ubah who decried the act in a post on his Facebook page on Friday, claimed the heartless gunmen ended up killing their brothers as two of the murdered soldiers were identified as Igbo men from the same Abia State.
“The gunmen ended up killing their own brothers,” Ubah said.
“Staff Sergeant Charles Ugochukwu who has spent 30 years in service is said to be from Ugwunagbo LGA, while Corporal Ikpeama ikechukwu is from Isiala Ngwa South LGA, both in Abia State. He was the only son of his parents.
“Corporal Ikpeama Ikechukwu has spent 11 years in service.

“May their Souls Rest in Peace.”
