Soldiers reportedly invaded Enugu community and burned down a house

Soldiers reportedly invaded parts of the Mgbowo community in Awgu LGA of Enugu State.

Villagers in the community were rudely awakened by gunshots fired by people believed to be invaders.

The soldiers came from where no one currently knows.

According to village sources, the soldiers entered through the old Enugu-Portharcourt road and entered Amaeta Mgbowo village through the entry point of the Girls’ Secondary School.

Upon entering the village, they reportedly invaded and set fire to a building at Urulor’s premises in Okegu hamlet while firing sporadically.

The villagers escaped and ran into the surrounding bushes as the invasion team descended the village towards Ogudu Hamlet.

At the corner of Christ the King Church, they veered right and headed towards Isingwu hamlet of nearby Imeama village.

Isingwu had been overrun by soldiers a few years ago and houses burned down.
At present, there are no clues as to the reason for the current invasion, as even the local leaders could not give any explanation.
