Aba residents are set to remain indoors following the horrific clash between IPOB supporters and the Nigerian army.
According to The Nation, following a resurgence of crisis between members of the Indegenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and men of the Nigerian Army in Aba, Abia state on Thursday, some residents have remained indoors while others are leaving the city in fear.
In areas around Uratta Junction, Ariaria Junction, Tonimas Junction and Flyover Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway, some people were seen carrying loads and waiting for vehicles to leave town.
Some northern youths gathered around Ariaria Junction carrying sticks and stones and so were some Igbo youths.
At Bakassi Bus Stop on the expressway, policemen threw tear-gas canisters at some youths who gathered at a nearby street.
There were unsubstantiated reports of killings and shootings in different parts of the city which has helped in heightening tension.
