The attack comes barely three months following troops invaded Orsu-Ihiteukwa, killing three people.

The military authorities would later made a claim that the three people killed were members of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). In the recent attack, the troops were said to have invaded Orsu-Ihiteukwa again at around 4 a.m., with several combatant vans, armoured tankers, and military helicopters.

Residents have further added that the troops were firing shots as well as detonating bombs, while the helicopters were flying over the communities.

The shootings as well as bombardments were said to have disrupted a burial ceremony, causing guests to run inside bushes for safety.

According to local media reports, “The operation was carried out in cooperation with members of Ebubeagu, a security outfit, which was backed by the Imo State Government.

One of the resident, Ifeanyichukwu Edurumba, 23, was said to have been whisked away from his home around 12 p.m. and dragged to market in Orsu-Ihiteukwa, where the troops allegedly killed him.


His uncle’s wife, Ifeoma Onyebuchi, said that, “We were inside the home when we heard that military people were coming to the community. So, he left his poultry farm & ran inside for safety. While we were inside, some people came & knocked on our door. They were a mixture of military and Ebubeagu members, all in their uniforms.”

“They ordered us to open the door. After I asked about their identity, they broke the door & gained entry. The boy ran under the bed with some kids. One of them said to us that if we don’t bring the boy, they will kill all of us. I said to them the boy is an orphan & the only son of his late parents. I told them he didn’t do anything wrong.”

She further added, that, “While I was talking to them, they ran inside the room & dragged the boy out as well as took him away.They later took the boy to Eke-Ututu Market and killed him.
