Armed men dressed on the Nigeria army uniforms again invaded Ukwagba community at Ngbo in Ohaukwu LGA Ebonyi state, on Tuesday 19th May 2020, and opened fire on unarmed innocent women clearing grasses in their farm land for cultivation and shot to death a young boy Tochukwu Umeh, while others sustained bullet injuries including Mrs Chinwe Egba who is now receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital.

Mrs Egba Chinyere who survived the terror attack told Ebonyi state IPOB media that the armed men which were more than fifty in their numbers dressed on Nigeria army uniforms carrying AK4-7 and AK49 rifles each, came from the route of Igala in Benue state.

On the video clip and pictures attached to this publication is an interview with the eye witness, who explained to us how it happened. She spoke with Ngbo language.

She said “the attack occurred at the hour of 11am” [interpretation] on the above-mentioned date. She added that 'it was only God that helped me to escape, perhaps to tell the ugly story'.

Late Tochukwu Ume, the young boy that died at the spot of the terror attack in the farm was buried same day in his father's country home at Okpochiri Ukwagba in Ngbo Ohaukwu LGA Ebonyi state same day of the occurrence on 19th May, 2020.

Some community leaders of Ngbo which was contacted, said they knew of the attack but were unaware of any Nigeria military deployment to maintain peace and orderliness at the long time conflict affected areas of Ngbo in Ohaukwu LGA Ebonyi state.  Some argued, should there be such development of soldiers’ deployment, it would have been on the news. Again, it ought to be the combined team of soldiers and security from both conflicts affected areas for proper discharge of their duties to the best interest of the people of Benue and Ebonyi state especially Ngbo and Igala.

Some were of the opinion that the armed men which carried out the attack might have come from the enemies’ camp, but disguised to be Nigeria army just to achieve their dastardly ambition.

Efforts made to reach the Nigeria army for confirmation and clarifications if it was their men that carried out the attack or not was fruitless.

Meanwhile, the Nigeria police in the area was alerted as at the time the attack was ongoing, but could not do anything to calm the situation.

Many has called on the international communities to look for a means of bringing lasting solution to the killings of the innocent and destruction of people's property at Ngbo. They asked them to keenly look into the quest to restore Biafra led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB because that according to them is the only thing that will bring perpetual solution.
