Nigerian Soldiers Flee As Unknown Gunmen Enforce Sit-at-home In Enugu, Burn Tricycle

A tricycle was on Monday morning burnt by unknown gunmen who were allegedly enforcing the sit-at-home order of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in Enugu State.


The gunmen were said to have intercepted the tricycle at Amechi Road, beside Romchi filling station in Enugu.


It was gathered that soldiers who were called to calm the situation fled after a gun battle with the gunmen.

On August 9, IPOB started the enforcement of the lockdown.


The sit-at-home order is to protest against the arrest and detention of IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu.


Over the past weeks, unidentified gunmen have targeted famous people in the South-East.


In June, Kanu was arrested in Kenya and extradited to Nigeria to face treason charges. He is facing charges bordering on treasonable felony instituted against him at the court in response to his agitation for the Republic of Biafra.
