One of the victims of the encroachment by soldiers
Nigerian soldiers allegedly shot two people today in Aba along Uratta junction.
According to a report shared by an online user, trouble started when a soldier was seen maltreating a lady hawking local herbs for no just cause. A fearless young man confronted the security operative and begged him to let her go.
However, the soldier misunderstood him and interpreted the gesture as confrontational. He approached the guy and started fighting with him. The civilian according to reports freely wrestled him to the ground.
The soldier called for help from other soldiers stationed at Christmary Hotel and Onions Market around Uratta junction axis. When they arrived the scene,they started destroying goods belonging to people and also shot sporadically into the air to spread panic.
Two people were allegedly shot during the incident. They are currently receiving treatment in hospital.
