The College of Education in Ebonyi was deserted as residents of Eha-Amufu communities flee when troops f the Nigerian Army invaded the community.

Troops of the Nigerian Army allegedly invaded Nkalaha community in Ishielu local government of Ebonyi State Monday morning and the residents are fleeing  the community in droves according to reports by Sahara Reporters yesterday.

Nkalaha is a neighbouring community to the war-torn Ebor, Umujiovu, and Mgbuji communities in Eha-Amufu Isi-Uzo local government area of Enugu State.

The military invasion of Nkalaha community has forced residents of the community and Eha-Amufu internally displaced persons (IDPs) to flee from the soldiers and the herdsmen to Enugu town and Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State capital.

It has been earlier reported that hundreds of troops of the Nigerian Army invaded Obeagu community in the same Ishielu local government area of Ebonyi State.

They had allegedly arrested and gone away with 10 residents of the community who were motorcycle riders and youths trained to defend the community after armed herdsmen invasion of the community on March 29, 2021, and October 13, 2022, which claimed 22 lives including children and women.

On one of the community’s Facebook pages, one of the witnesses wrote: “Our community heads, councillor, and commissioner must as a matter of urgency call a town hall meeting for what happened in Nkalaha today. There must be an immediate resolution to the problem so that our community will remain peaceful”
