Two military personnel have been slain after unknown gunmen attacked a military checkpoint located at Timber Junction area in Afikpo North Local Government Area of Ebonyi state on the night of Monday, April 26.

 

According to the Nation, the gunmen arrived at the checkpoint occupying a white bus and as the military men halted them for a search, they opened fire on them. The gunmen thereafter took away the rifles of the deceased military men.

“It’s a very sad situation here. They said it was people suspected to be gunmen, who came to the checkpoint at Timber Shade (boundary Ehugbo and Amasiri) in white bus.

As usual, it appeared the military were checking them and all of a sudden, they opened fire on them. Two of the military men, a man and woman, died. Others ran away.

The area is as quiet as the graveyard. These bordering villages used to be very busy and people here are farmers and traders. But the moment that happened, people started going home. Nobody is seen outside as I speak to you. Every place is calm. There is fear here now. The world is about to end” a resident said

 

The Military is yet to comment on the recent development.
