A single mother of three, Ifeoma Nnebuo has died after being hit by stray bullets during the invasion of Ebubeagu operatives in Afor Atta Market, Njaba Local Government Area of Imo State. The Ebubeagu operatives were allegedly searching for ESN operatives.
Nnebuo, a fashion designer was shot in the head and was admitted to Saint Mary’s hospital Orlu on Sunday. She died on Monday.
This comes barely one month after Ebubeagu operatives killed 14 wedding guests in Awo Mmamma, Oru East Local Government Area of the state and one week after the vigilante group, in conjunction with police officers set 7 cars and 18 shops ablaze in Izombe, Oguta Local Government Area.
The Ebubeagu operatives also arrested Izombe residents attending the annual Okorosha festival who were later paraded by the Imo State Police Command as hoodlums who attacked the Agwa police station where four officers were killed.
