Soldiers patrolling Ihiala Local Government Area of Anambra State have shot a yet-to-be-identified man.
On Tuesday, November 9, soldiers from a patrol van opened fire on commuters hundreds of metres away from the LGA headquarters and one fell.
According to FIJ, after moving a short distance away, a crowd began to form around the man, prompting the soldiers to return, firing sporadically again and sending residents scampering for security.
When FIJ returned to the scene, the middle-aged man was no longer there. Multiple witnesses said he had been picked up by the soldiers.
Attempts to record the incident were futile, as soldiers forced all commuters to alight from their vehicles and raise both hands to full length.
Reports earlier had it that a supplementary election in Ihiala LGA was scheduled for Tuesday, November 9 2021 as elections failed to hold in the area on Saturday due to insecurity.
