Oyigbo Local Government Area (LGA) in Rivers State is currently under attack.
BREAKINGTIMES reports that Oyigbo is a town 30 kilometers from Port Harcourt, south-south Nigeria.
The ongoing attack in Oyigbo LGA is coming a few hours after President Muhammadu Buhari addressed Nigerians on #EndSARS protests which was ongoing across Nigeria, until a massacre of the peaceful protesters by soldiers of the Nigerian Army in Lekki, Lagos.
In his speech on Thursday night, Buhari suspended the protests across the nation.
He said the suspension follows the violent turn of #EndSARS protests across the Federation, which have been hijacked by hoodlums.
