Irate members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, on Tuesday, February 9 attacked a secondary school in Aba, Abia state as revenge for the death of 6 of their members during a recent clash between the group and the Nigerian Army.
Students and teachers of the National High School, Port Harcourt road, Aba were thrown into a state of confusion and panic when hundreds of angry pro-Biafra protesters stormed the school premises, with the aim of attacking them.
The protesters accused the teachers of informing the Nigerian Army of their presence in the school.
As it appears, earlier in the day, security agents had arrived the National High School- where the protesters had gathered for a prayer session.
Some of the IPOB leaders were arrested by the Nigerian Army, resulting in a fiasco that led to the death of 6 people with many getting injured.
A YNaija citizen reporter in Aba, who spoke to an eyewitness of the protesters’ reprisal attack, learned that the IPOB members stormed the school, claiming that the teachers reported them to the soldiers.
The protesters then proceeded to beat up the teachers leaving 4 of them critically wounded and hospitalised.
The IPOB members whose agitation is the release of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu and secession from Nigeria- also threatened to stone some of the teachers to death and also kidnap some of them.
The eyewitness revealed that the protesters specifically threatened to kidnap him while the school students fled from their classrooms in panic and into the streets.
Some of the teachers and students of the school, who also spoke to YNaija, pleaded with the military to provide adequate security for them.
Since the attack, the National High School has refused to resume activities with most of them scared that the protesters will return to wreck more havoc on them.
