Some yet to be identified gunmen have attacked an Army checkpoint in Aba on Friday.
It was gathered that a patrol van was burnt in the incident by the armed men.
According to reports, the invaders stormed the checkpoint at Tonimas junction along Enugu-Aba-Port Harcourt Expressway, Aba in Abia state, in the early hours of Friday.
The attackers were said to have laid an ambush for the soldiers who usually arrive the checkpoint early especially when there is sit-at-home.
They were said to have opened fire as the soldiers arrived the checkpoint.
As at the time of filing this report, it wasn’t clear if any life was lost in the attack.
Sit-at-home is being enforced in most parts of the South-East every Monday and on the days, IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu goes to court.
Aba is one of the cities in the southeast that always abide by the IPOB directives.
