Military begins withdrawal from Aba





The Army has begun a gradual withdrawal of its men stationed at various checkpoints in Aba after last week’s clash with protesting members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Abia State Governor Okezie Ikpeazu told reporters last weeks in Umuahia that the military was withdrawing soldiers from the state.

Investigation by NAN yesterday showed that only few of the new military checkpoints mounted in the commercial city had been dismantled.

The five military checkpoints mounted on the busy Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway had been reduced to three.

Emeka Chukwuma, a tricycle operator and resident of the city, told NAN that the checkpoints were causing traffic gridlock.

He urged the governor to prevail on the military authority to remove the checkpoints to ease traffic.

Activities are gradually returning to normal in Aba.

Markets have re-opened after the five-day dusk-to-dawn curfew imposed on the city by the governor.

Most of the shops at Ariaria International Market, New Market, Shopping Centre, Cemetery Markets have re-opened for business. Customers were seen going about their businesses.
