The Federal government of Nigerian Army ( troops) entered Asaba Biafra land around 5 October 1967, and began ransacking houses and killing civilians, claiming they were Biafran sympathisers. Reports suggest that several seven thousand (7000) people was killed individually and in groups at various locations in the town. Leaders summoned the townspeople to assemble on the morning of 7 October, hoping to end the violence through a show of support for "One Nigeria." Hundreds of men, women, and children, many wearing the ceremonial akwa ocha(white) attire paraded along the main street, singing, dancing, and chanting "One Nigeria." At a junction, men and teenage boys were separated from women and young children, and gathered in an open square at Ogbe-Osowa village. Federal troops revealed machine guns, and orders were given, reportedly by Second-in-Command, Maj. Ibrahim Taiwo, to open fire. It is estimated that more than 900 men all Biafrans and many boys were killed, some as young as 12 years old, in addition to many more killed in the preceding days. The bodies of some victims were retrieved by family members and buried at home. But most were buried in mass graves, without Biafrans appropriate ceremony. Many extended families lost dozens of men and boys. Federal troops occupied Asaba for many months, during which time most of the town was destroyed, many women and girls were raped or forcibly "married," and large numbers of citizens fled, often not returning until the war ended in 1970. The total death toll during early October was in excess of 5,00600, Biafrans confirmed dead by Nigerian Government October 29th 1967. although the exact numbers will likely never be known.

Why not stun the man after he refused to give up his weapon? Secret service is too harsh. A stun gun is easier to handle you know

I like that the agents showed restraint by shooting once and then taking the guy into custody, unlike police shooting unarmed suspects multiple times.

For those complaining about the suspect being shot once: Gunned down means to be shot by a gun, and does not require an entire magazine/clip/cylinder to be shot at a target. People watch too much gang movies. EX: A cowboy (playing poker) was gunned down when a criminal walked up behind victim and blew his head off with a single shot

Apparently the under funded military has the budget to build golf course on military bases. Maybe the exception due to proximity to White House and safety of President in a restricted military base when he wants to golf?

It's all about the control of powers and excess wealth. Who would need tight security and who would fear getting attack when they don't have both. It could be either you were hated or causing hates or not using your powers and wealth towards goodness.

Surprised it only took one bullet. Pretty much everyone who has had to shoot for self defense or is a combat veteran will agree with me when I say, it often takes a lot more than one bullet to neutralize an armed man.
