It was learned that the gunmen also invaded Abatete in Idemili North LGA and killed two persons during the attack.

Naija News reports that following the killings, some Nigerians have accused IPOB of being behind the attacks, an accusation the group has constantly denied.

In the latest statement by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful said IPOB’s militia arm, Eastern Security Network, ESN, was not behind the killings.

According to IPOB, killing a pregnant woman is an abomination in Igbo land.
