A video has emanated online, allegedly showing irate youths including a child, throwing stones and bottles at a Nigerian Army Armoured Personnel Carrier, APC, in Abia State.
According to the account which posted the video online, the youths were members of the Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB, protesting the house arrest of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
The video shows them stoning the vehicle in front of what is believed to be Kanu’s home where the army has stationed itself since yesterday.
Recall that yesterday, members of the group and the army clashed, causing the state Government to impose a dusk till dawn curfew for three days.
Unconfirmed reports claim five persons were killed in the clash, an allegation the Army has debunked.
The video does not show the army reacting much to the attack, besides driving to a point further from the attackers who followed closely behind.
Other army vehicles soon gathered on the scene, but no personnel engaged the attackers.
NewsWire NGR has made efforts to contact the army through the telephone number provided, and via its social media handles but our efforts came to nought.
