Another point which must be mentioned here is that the killing of the Eastern soldiers was indiscriminate.So, we left that night to go and look out and came back late.They marched us down, Ironsi and myself, to where Fajuyi was.The Colonel did not plead for mercy or remonstrate in any other manner, but quietly prayed until he was shot in the back by Major Anuforo, using his SMG.Muhammadu Buhari and John Longboem (2nd battalion), Lts.
He maintained that he saw Ironsi and Fajuyi shot dead.
Unegbe's house, Major Anuforo entered the house alone.
Anuforo and his men then entered the vehicle which was driven straight to the Federal Guard Officers' Mess.
The PM was then led away by Major Ifeajuna along Awolowo Road where Ifeajuna had parked his car adjacent to the Onikan swimming pool.
On arrival at the Onikan roundabout, at approximately 0230 hrs on 15 Jan 66, Major Ifeajuna divided his force into three groups as shown in para 34 of this report.
