Many feared dead as Army, Police invade Obigbo communities.

Not less than 20 persons have reportedly been shot dead in some communities across Obigbo Local Government Area of Rivers State, on Thursday.

Reports state that residents were taken by surprise in the early hours on Thursday by men of the Nigerian military and the police.

The security personnel were reportedly breaking into homes, workplaces, shops and worship centers without permission.

An eyewitness who disclosed the death toll to Obinnwannem noted that soldiers were conducting house searches, shooting dead innocent citizens in the process and taking away the bodies to unknown destination.

The eyewitness who pleaded anonymity also said that the State Governor, Nyesom Wike had connived with the security authorities to kill Igbo residents in the guise of searching for IPOB members.

“Many have been confirmed dead, while so many others are in various medical centers fighting for their lives. We are under military siege, we need intervention”. He said.

Recall that the Rivers State Governor had declared war against members of the Indigenous People Of Biafra IPOB, who he claimed were responsible for the killing of security officers during the #EndSARS protests.

Meanwhile, residents who were deserting the area as a result of the chaos were spotted by Obinwannem News.
