Passenger burnt alive as IPOB sit-at-home order turns bloody
In another development, Imo state on Monday, August 9, turned bloody following the sit-at-home order issued by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) led by Nnamdi Kanu.
It was reported that one passenger was burnt alive inside one of the three buses that were torched by a mob in Nkwogu, Ahiazu Mbaise local government area of the state.
According to the report, two vehicles belonging to a popular transport company ran into a group of hoodlums suspected to be IPOB members while coming from Umuahia, Abia state capital.
It was gathered that the suspects shot at the tyres, which forced the bus to stop and the passengers hurried to safety. However, a passenger could not escape before the bus was burnt while one of the bus drivers was reportedly shot.
