A bread van in Enugu was set on fire by persons suspected to be members of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Emene, a suburb of Enugu, was the scene of the incident on the day the group asked residents to stay at home in solidarity with Nnamdi Kanu, its leader.
Around the old Orie Emene market, witnesses saw the van burning.
A witness described the incident as follows: “The driver is the owner of the popular Chimex bread in the area. The attackers dragged the bus driver out, looted all the bread and set it on fire.
Later, a soldier arrived on the scene and fired into the air to disperse the hoodlums. I watched from a distance; there were no casualties.”
A tricycle and another vehicle were also burned by the suspects.
The miscreants burned the commercial vehicle after chasing the passengers aboard.
In Enugu East Local Government Area, a Sienna car was burned at Ibeagwa Junction along the Enugu-Opi road.
In addition, two tricycles, known as Kekes, were vandalized in the area.
One was set ablaze at PRODA Junction, Emene, while the other was destroyed just before Coal City, University.
The tension was still high at the time of this report in Emene, on the outskirts of Enugu.
