Nigerian Military Vows to Crush IPOB After Killing of Soldiers in Abia State

The Nigerian military has issued a stern warning to the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) following the brutal assassination of five soldiers at a checkpoint in Abia State. The soldiers were enforcing a sit-at-home order issued by IPOB to commemorate the Igbo people who died during the 1967-70 Nigerian Civil War.

In a press statement released by Major General Director of Defence Media Operations, Edward Buba, the military expressed its resolve to retaliate fiercely against this dastardly act. The attack occurred at the Obikabia Junction Checkpoint in Obingwa Local Government Areas, adjacent to Aba metropolis in Abia State. Tragically, the terrorists from IPOB/ESN targeted the troops deployed to maintain peace in the area and protect citizens. The assailants, driving three tinted Prado Toyota SUVs, launched a surprise attack on the checkpoint, resulting in the loss of five brave soldiers’ lives.

General Buba emphasized that the lifeline of any terrorist group is the support of the people. Without the backing of the local population, winning the war against such groups becomes nearly impossible. The IPOB capitalized on this vulnerability to perpetrate attacks on the troops. However, the military remains committed to upholding peace and security for all citizens. They have vowed to exert overwhelming military pressure on the group until their total defeat is ensured.

Amidst the grief over the fallen heroes, the military’s message is clear: they will not tolerate attacks on their personnel. The response will be fierce, and the perpetrators will face the consequences of their actions. As investigations continue, the nation mourns the loss of these brave soldiers, and their sacrifice will not be forgotten.
