Bridget Anurika Eze took to facebook to share her experience she had with IPOB member and she wrote.
“Before we knew it IPOB boys rushed out from nowhere and attacked our Hilux, they were more than 15, carrying different weapons, one of them used a shovel to hit the Hilux hard.
“Before I could blink my eyes they opened the door and started dragging us out, I heard my oga (boss) chorused, NO please, we are BIAFRANS ” I joined them o, and was shouting, Biafra, Biafra… These boys werena’t even listening, one used a heavy big stone and was hitting my oga.”
She added that others were removing the car upholstery, claiming that they couldn’t be Biafran’s with Nigerian flag and Coat of Arms printed on the seats that way.
“I didn’t know what to do, they dragged me outta the car, I came down didn’t know what to do, I thought of hiding under the Hilux but no way because they were just everywhere,” she added.
“I was just praying my last prayer just in case they decide to kill us. Ever seen or witnessed any case of jungle justice? Now, that’s exactly the scene today.
“The other part of the road was another set of IPOB boys damaging a truck full of goods, and another Dangote truck full of cement on fire already.
All this I witnessed/saw within 20mins.”
The agitators eventually let them go after they paid N500.
“We sped off…On our way still driving carefully, because they are everywhere, we saw soldiers in their convoy coming down to calm the situation,” she narrated.
“On entering Umuahia, the check points are tight, every living thing except the driver inside a bus, car, Keke must come down and raise his/her two hands up to be sure the person isn’t with any weapon.

She concluded that until there’s a legally defined way to go about the Biafra agitation, the harassments will continue.
