The Trent is claiming that Nigerian soldiers stormed hospitals in Onitsha and carted away corpses of Pro-Biafra protesters.
We have it on good authority that four to eight dead victims and 13 critically injured members of the public who were shot dead and critically injured by the soldiers of the Onitsha Military Cantonment in the evening of yesterday, 17th December 2015 at the Ojukwu Gateway, Onitsha Niger Bridgehead; have been taken away to unknown destination by soldiers of the Cantonment. The soldiers after perpetrating the heinous act at the Niger Bridgehead between 2.pm and 3.30pm; reportedly stormed the Multicare Hospital, along Limca Road, Nkpor, Anambra State, between 8.pm and 9.pm and abducted 13 critically injured citizens brought for treatment. The four dead citizens were also said to have earlier been taken away by the soldiers from the scene of the shooting. Till this moment, their whereabouts have remained unknown. The Onitsha Military Cantonment is commanded by one Col Abdullahi and his GLO mobile line is: 08053862233.
The breaking news of the Federal High Court order for immediate and unconditional release of Citizen Nnamdi Kanu; had resulted in wide jubilations in many cities and communities including Onitsha, Aba, Ogbaru and Nkpor in the Southeast Zone; leading to some people matching in solidarity in various markets, motor parks, streets and roads including the Ojukwu Gateway at the Onitsha Niger Bridgehead. Some solidarity matchers with “Biafran Flags”, joined by other exciting members of the public; numbering less than 200 people, had matched from Nkpor to Upper Iweka and headed towards the Onitsha Niger Bridgehead to salute the statute of Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, located at the Niger Bridgehead; when soldiers stationed at the Bridge opened fire on them, leading to instant death of four citizens and critically injuring of 13 others. As it stands now, the identities of the dead and critically injured citizens are yet to be ascertained because of spontaneity of the solidarity and jubilation match.
