A civil right activitist, Mrs. Angela Oliver Mbah, raised the alarm that her life is under threat because of the role she played in the recent #EndSARS protest in Nigeria.
She told journalists that there increased arrest and execution of the arrested people in Umunze, Anambra state, by unknown assailants suspected to be state security agents after they are tagged IPOB members.
She said that, in the aftermath of the EndSARS protest, some many young men and their families have been displaced and many left with untold hardship.
She narrated: “The situation is pathetic in Umunze, Orumba South Local Government Area, Anambra State. Nigerian military unleash its might on the people as a result of the protest and post protest actions. Many have been killed, families displaced and property worth billions of Naira destroyed.”
One of the youth leaders in the community identified as Onyenauche, told journalists that, recently, the house of Mrs. Mbah was stormed by unknown men with sophisticated weapons.
According to eyewitness account, the unknown gunmen men numbering 10 with three vehicles without inscription of identity nor even plate number invaded the home of Mrs. Mba few days after returned back to her husband’s house with her children.
The eyewitness who pleaded anonymity said the nature of the vehicles and men carrying guns drew the attention of the youths within the locality. “The youths asked them questions on who they are, and who they want to arrest and for what reason.
“The youths were apparently unsatisfied and disagreed with their answer and situation in Mrs. Oliver Mbah’s house. They fervently demanded for cogent explanation, therefore insisted that the unknown gunmen should not take the poor woman away to unknown destination leaving her children.
“In the process, the men started shooting and intimidating the unarmed youths with gun, belts and chains. Two persons were killed and many were inflicted with different degrees of injuries. The sporadic shooting and use of force on the people that visited Mrs. Oliver Mbah’s house that fateful day caused serious commotion and pandemonium.”
Another eyewitness account pointed that a similar attack took place two years ago in the same house which led to the disappearance of Mrs. Mba’s husband, Oliver.
The youths solicited the intervention of international community and other Nigerians as regards the safety of Mrs. Mba and her children.
Just recently, Nigeria Government has lamented on the menace of IPOB. President Mohammed Buhari led government has accused IPOB of destabilizing the country and infiltrating ENDSARS protest to cause chaos to the Nation.
