Anyanwu said; ‘Yes, I called a member of Ebubeagu and he said that the attack was true’.

A resident in the area, Mr Victor Ogbaga, who spoke with newsmen in Abakaliki, said Sunday Izhikpa was a native of Nduakparata Igbeagu in the area.

‘He was killed by the gunmen at his duty post, Mkpuma Ekwa-Oku in Izzi. The corpse of the victim has been evacuated from the scene, where he was murdered this morning,’ Ogbaga stated.

Meanwhile, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has commended Prof. Uju Anya over her remarks on the late Queen Elizabeth of England, saying that her views on the late Queen and the British government represent the opinion of over 98 percent of Biafrans.

The group said IPOB did not know the person called Anya until her viral comment and counter comments on Twitter. The group added that it is certain that the pains and scars of Biafran genocide live with every man or woman with Igbo blood.

In a statement, yesterday, the IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, noted that Anya’s statement on the late Queen’s role on the mass murder of innocent citizens of Biafra during the 1967 – 1970 war and African colonisation has shown that the history of the genocide and issues of colonisation can not be forgotten unless it’s discussed and addressed.
