On Sunday 18th September 2016, a young Biafran who was identified as Sampson Izima was shot dead by a Nigerian soldiers at about 8:35am at Umuimo, near Umuokpara community in Osisioma L.G.A. Abia state.
According to Chidiebere the brother of Sampson Izima, who narrated the incident to our reporter Chibuike Eme, “Sampson was coming back from a barbing saloon with two of his friends in the neighborhood, when one of two soldiers who came out from a bush, heading towards their patrol van, suddenly opened fire on them and quickly entered their patrol van and zoomed off, on hearing the sound of the gun, everybody ran away only to come back minutes later and met Sampson lying dead
The report has it that one of His family members who happened to be a soldier was contacted, and he immediately reported the case to army barrack but was told that solders were not on patrol in that area as at the time of the incident.
However, investigation later showed that the perpetrators of this evil were soldiers who usually come around the community for oil bunkering.
This is how Nigerian soldiers are killing Biafran youth, it is a regular occurrence in Biafra land, they are kidnapping and killing our youths and nobody is being held accountable for all the killings. We are urging Biafrans to be at high alert because Biafra land is under siege, and also alerting the international community on the killings going on in Biafra land by the Islamic Nigerian government.
