Unknown Gunmen Behead Army Couple

According to reports, a couple who were operatives of the Nigerian army were allegedly shot dead and then beheaded by unknown gunmen suspected to be Ipob/ESN members on Saturday.

According to military authorities, A.M Linus, an army sergeant first class, and his lance corporal wife-to-be were on their way to Imo State when the incident occurred.

The gunmen were said to have mocked the couple’s family members after beheading them.

After the incident, the gunmen allegedly put the victims’ heads on their chests, according to a graphic footage reportedly seen by SaharaReporters.

“It’s so sad that we soldiers are no safer, the man was a member of the 19 regular intakes while the wife was of the 79RI.

“They were on their way to Imo state on Saturday when the incident happened. You won’t believe these gunmen as we speak still used their phones to make calls to their family members, making jest of them and threatening to kill them as well.

“This couple just married recently, even their photoshoot caused a lot of criticism and seems they were punished for it.

“Though the man is married to another woman with grown-up kids, he suddenly eloped with this young soldier, I was told the girl also had kids before joining the army as well. 

“The man still has a father, his brother is also a soldier working at a battalion in Kaduna. The lady was also raped before they were beheaded,” a soldier told SaharaReporters.

In a trending audio that has since gone viral, one of the killers was overheard talking on the phone with a friend of the dead female soldier.

The victims were killed, according to a male voice, as a result of attacks reportedly carried out by the Nigerian Army.

The caller was crying at one point, but the militant insulted her.

The content of the recording cannot be independently verified by GallantMilitary, but it is related to the incident that has sparked widespread condemnation and indignation.

Armed men’s attacks have grown in the South-East in recent years. Security agencies and government facilities are frequently targeted in these attacks.

The new tragedy came only hours after gunmen stormed a military checkpoint in Agulu, Anambra state’s Anaocha LGA, and opened fire on soldiers, killing one.

The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has been linked to the region’s fatal attacks. However, the gang has denied any role in the attacks.

Nnamdi Kanu, the group’s leader, is now incarcerated in Abuja, where he is facing treason charges.
