BREAKING: US Embassy Staff ‘Gunned Down’ In Anambra

Some staff of the United States Embassy in Nigeria have been shot dead in Ogbaru Local Government Area of Anambra State.

Sources told Daily Trust that the convoy of the embassy officials came under fire as they were passing through the area.

A source said they were on humanitarian mission to the area while another source said the attacked officials wanted to connect their destination through Ogbaru.

“At least four persons were killed in the attack while others sustained injuries. Troops have taken over the community,” a security source told Daily Trust.

Details of the attack were not available as of the time of filing this report, but DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, Police Public Relations Officer in Anambra, confirmed the incident.

However, he did not go into details.

“Following the information of the shooting incident within Ogbaru community, the Commissioner of Police CP Echeng Echeng has deployed a police team led by the deputy commissioner of police in charge of operations to arrest the situation.

“Meanwhile, the details of the incident are still sketchy, I will get back to you as soon as I can, please.”

Ikenga ceased subsequent communication with Daily Trust on the issue as he neither responded to calls or replied further messages.

The US mission Nigeria also confirmed the incident, saying its personnel were collaborating with Nigerian security operatives to get to the root of the matter.

We confirm there was an incident on May 16 in Anambra state. U.S. Mission Nigeria personnel are working with Nigerian security services to investigate. The security of our personnel is always paramount, and we take extensive precautions when organizing trips to the field. We have no further comment at this time,” a US Mission Nigeria spokesperson said in response to Daily Trust inquiry.

Anambra is one of the South Eastern States with high level of violence in recent times.

Security operatives have blamed attacks on the outlawed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) and Eastern Security Network (ESN), its armed wing.

Many lives have been lost in the campaign of violence launched by deadly groups operating under the guise of “unknown gunmen”.

  1. Obasanjo AND TINY BABY BRAIN LITTLE Charley boy SHOULD HAV BEEN ARRESTED BY NOW FOR PLOTTING TO SET Nigeria ON FIRE AS REVEALED IN A LEAKED AUDIO RECORDING.

    Pandora Peter Obi must have been invited by security agencies, also. The head obidense obirodent did same by calling for a religious war against Nigeria, also. In a leaked audio recording.

    ALL OTHER COMPLICIT CONSPIRATORS AGAINST THE Nigerian STATE MUST HAVE BEEN COOLING OFF IN POLICE CUSTODY FOR SEDITIOUS PLOTS AGAINST Nigeria.

    The US government as currently constituted under Joe Nothing is also complicit in the current state of affairs of Nigeria. The double standard dual cunning relationship of the US is questionable troublesome and worrisome.

    THE EVIL INTERVENTIONIST POSTURE OF THE US IN THE Nigeria DEMOCRACY BY WAY OF VISA BAN IS AN UNWHOLESOME HYPOCRISY.

    Perhaps, the American government should impose visa ban on all the people and indigenes of Anambra state for the killings of American citizens in Ogbaru in Anambra state. This tantamount to anti democracy stance.

    MAY BE Obasanjo’s NAME WITH HIS CO TRAVELERS IN ANTI DEMOCRATIC RHETORIC WOULD EARN THEM VISA BANS. WE SHALL WAIT TO SEE THE USELESS LIST OF THE NAMES OF VISA BANS.

    America never had it this bad under the bad undeserving leadership of an inept inefficient incompetent Joe Nothing.

    THE US IS FAST BECOMING THE SCORN OF THE ENTIRE WORLD. WHAT A SHAME!
