A major of the Nigerian Army and three other soldiers have reportedly been shot dead on Thursday, March 17, in Abonnema in Akuku-Toru local government area of Rivers state.
A source who spoke to Sahara Reporters, said that the soldiers ran into an ambush set up by militants.
However, both the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state are accusing each other of the act.
