A stray bullet has hit a young woman identified as Chinenye Ajunwa in Ebem Ohafia, headquarter of Ohafia Local Government Area of Abia, bringing down while reclining in her father's shop.

The incident occurred when soldiers and gunmen were locked in a gun duel in the community - the stray bullet reportedly hit Chinenye on Wednesday, August 17, 2022. 

At least three others, including a yet-to-be identified soldier, who was serving at 14 Brigade Headquarters, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan Barracks, Ohafia, were also affected.

The rescued soldier had gone to Ebem market to buy groceries when he noticed that he was being trailed by some armed men. 

A source said: "He heard when the gunmen were asking about a soldier that Okada just brought and quickly hid somewhere, and from his hideout he sent an SOS message to the Brigade." 

Soldiers were mobilised for his rescue and the gunmen engaged the soldiers.
