Oba community in Idemili Local Government Area of Anambra State has accused the Indigenous People Of Biafra(IPOB) of carrying out an attack that has reportedly left about six Children dead.

The said attack was reported to have taken place on Tuesday.

The children, all under 10 years old, were killed during an attack on a Fulani community in Oba.

Residents said the attack was carried out by suspected members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB), amid escalating ethnic tensions in Nigeria.

Candidreporters.com gathered that some members of the community who spoke to pressmen said they would not retaliate as they are trusting the security authorities to deliver justice to them, with the host community and state assuring of solidarity and assistance.

Horrific photographs shown the deceased children savagely macheted and one said to be just one-year-old, burnt.

Also, the background of the photographs shows razed homes.

The impact of the attack suggests children were targeted or that they were only killed because elderly members of the community were absent at the time attack was carried out.
