An unusual attack on a bank has happened in Anambra state, with 10 gunmen storming a bank premises and bearing Biafran flags.

There was no money stolen, no person killed, but some parked vehicles were damaged, according to a report.

The attack happened at Abagana, Njikoka local government area around 4pm on Thursday.

According to TheNation, the attack took place barely hours after Indigenous People of Biafra’s (IPOB) leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu raised the alarm over alleged DSS’ plan to attack banks in South East.

He alleged the ploy was to hang the attacks on IPOB.

The shooting in front of the old generation bank scared passersby, customers and staff who took to their heels.

The gunmen, according to an eyewitness, drove in black Honda Pilot Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV).

Confirming the incident, Anambra Police Public Relations Officer, Ikenga Tochukwu said the Command was on the trail of the hoodlums.

According to him: “Those hoodlums were pursuing their target and when they could not get him, they started shooting sporadically in the air.

  1. IPOB is not a criminal organization and nobody should christen it as such. IPOB is asking for self-determination in a country where they believe they have been treated unfairly and where they are overwhelmed by perceived injustice.
    Carrying Biafra flag doesn’t mean that the people are IPOB members because anyone can get hold of the flag.

  2. Thank God, Nnamdi Kanu told Nigerians about the attack before it happened in order to indict IPOB and ask for the head of Nnamdi kanu..

    This government is evil and they continue to use state apparatus to achieve their aim against any perceived enemy of the clueless administration.

    Recall the issue of former Chief Justice of the Federation, how this administration rubbished him because he will never fail to state the position of the LAW.

    APC and their administration must face Boko Haram, banditry, Kidnapping and gruesome killing either sponsored by them, herders to achieve the expansionist program of their brother or deviate Nigerians attention to their misgovernment.

    GOD will judge them.

  3. The same thing they did in OFFA KWARA state Bank robbery to indict Saraki the then senate President. Saraki is now vindicated. Nigerians can now begin to ask about the difference between perpetrators of this staged bank robbery in Abagana Anambra state and the ones behind Owerri jailbreak, unknown gunmen,attackers of Soludo, Ebonyi state attackers, and so on. What about the Boko Haram, ISWAP, BANDITS, Fulani herdsmen, Ansari group and so on. This indeed is the NEXT LEVEL.

  4. The last time Nigeria saw this level of rascality by government’s agents was during Abacha.

    It’s unintelligent for the DSS to be killing security personnels and attacking banks and deepening the level of insecurity in Nigeria for the sole purpose of criminalizing IPOB.

    Without doubt, all the insecurity in the south east is undeniably a mischievous, premeditated and calculated attempt by the DSS to frame IPOB.

    What a criminal government agency.

    What a situation. I take a stroll. Nonsense.
