Bandits attack Nigerian Army checkpoint in Anambra, personnel feared dead


Yet to be uncovered gunmen on Saturday raided soldiers at one checkpoint in Agulu, Anaocha Local Government Area of Anambra State.
According to Easterner, sources disclosed that the gunmen manufactured automatic rifles, cutlasses and other dangerous weapons.
They reportedly befall the checkpoint, which was operated by soldiers and began shooting at them, causing the soldiers to fire back in a bid to defend/save themselves.
The source disclosed the gunmen trooped in  with exotic automobiles about four in number, suspected to have been snatched from innocent civilians for their treacherous operations.

“They confronted the soldiers for about 10 minutes, making residents of the area to run for safety, and after a long gun battle, the men maneuvered the soldiers, forcing them to withdraw.
“The men did not mask their faces, and they were shouting on top of their voices, asking that Nnamdi Kanu, leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, be set free.

“We saw them, some people even tried to make videos, but everyone was afraid not to be spotted and shot,” the source said.
Meanwhile, the Anambra State Police Command has confirmed the incident, while also condemning it as an attack on the nation.
Spokesperson for the command, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, said, “Generally speaking, any attack on any security agent is a threat to the soul of a nation. Yes, there was a shooting incident at a checkpoint in Agulu but the information is yet sketchy.”
