At least four persons, including a soldier and a businesswoman, were k#lled on Wednesday, August 17, when unknown g#nmen engaged soldiers in a g#n b@ttle in Abia State.

It was gathered that the unfortunate incident occurred on Wednesday, August 17, in Ebem Ohafia LGA of the state.

The Nation reports that the yet-to-be-identified soldier, who was serving at 14 Brigade Headquarters, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan Barracks, Ohafia was k#lled when soldiers were responding to a distress call from one of their colleagues who escaped from being killed in Ebem community.

It was learned the deceased soldier was apparently in the community for an errand before he was k#lled by gunmen who trailed him to the community.

Meanwhile, a businesswoman identified as Miss Chinenye Ajunwa from Amuta in Isuikwuato LGA resident in Ohafia was h#t by stray b#llet during the g#n duel.

According to a source, the rescued soldier had gone to Ebem market in a commercial motorcycle to buy groceries when he noticed that he was being trailed by an armed group of boys.

“He heard when the g#nmen were asking about a soldier that Okada just brought and quickly hide somewhere and from his hideout, he sent an SOS message to the Brigade.

Soldiers were mobilized for his rescue and the g# men who are members Eastern Security Network (ESN) engaged the soldiers. Two of them were k#lled. A pump action g#n, cutlasses and two motorbikes belonging to the g#nmen were recovered from them.

It was while the soldiers were on patrol in the community, after rescuing the other soldier, that they discovered that the g#nmen had k#lled a soldier in the same community,” the source said.
