It has been alleged that members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Sunday, May 22, 2022, killed 10 Northerners, including a pregnant woman, her four children, and six others.
The pregnant woman and her children were killed at Isulo, Orumba North Local Government Area of the state.
The killing of the northerners was allegedly perpetrated by the pro-Biafran group a few days after the discovery of the head of an Anambra State lawmaker, Okey Okoye who was abducted and killed by the terrorists.
Narrating how the woman was killed alongside her children, her husband Jibril Ahmed told BBC Hausa that the insurgents waylaid them on their way back home after a visit to Orumba North.
Usman Abdullahi, the leader of the Hausa community in Ihiala also confirmed the attack, saying the slain woman was a native of Adamawa State. He said all Hausa people have deserted Ihiala, following heightened attacks on non-natives in the area.
Muhammad who narrated the ordeal told newsmen that the killing of the pregnant woman together with her four children by gunmen was not new to them as many of his people were killed in such a callous manner.
In a video trending on Twitter, the victims were seen lying in the pool of their blood with bullets spread around and a narrator speaking in Igbo saying: “Everybody should look at this video that they have shot a woman and her four children. They are from the North. And they are shooting everybody they see on the street; so people should be careful.”
