Tension In Abia As Suspected IPOB Members Search For Hausas
There is fire on the mountain and no one seems to be running.
Reports reaching Bounce News suggest that members of Indegenous People Of Biafra, IPOB are presently on the major roads of Abia state checking vehicles for Hausas and Fulanis while another indicates that Igbos in the north refused to open shops for fear of reprisal attacks.
A source in Kaduna state who spoke to Bounce News however dismissed the report of Igbos leaving the north, but he admitted that there was some concern earlier on Wednesday but it was just rumours in some council areas.
Meanwhile hoodlums suspected to be members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), have attacked the home of the Abia State Commissioner of Police, Adeleye Oyebade.
The attackers were said to have stormed Oyebade's official residence in Umuahia, the state capital on Thursday morning and burnt down cars they saw in the compound.
Oyebade, who was on Wednesday night replaced by Anthony Ogbizi, was not in the house when the attackers stormed the building.
Abia State has witnessed a lot of tension in the last few days, starting with the attack on a convoy of the Nigerian Army by suspected members of IPOB close to the residence of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu in Umuahia.
Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State had on Wedndesday extended the three-day dusk to dawn curfew he imposed on Aba to Friday, September 15.
