‘Five’ shot dead as Imo boils again

At least five people have been killed in Anara, Isiala Mbano Local Government Area of Imo State.

At least five people have been killed in Anara, Isiala Mbano Local Government Area of Imo State.

Gunmen were said to have attacked the community on Tuesday night.

A resident simply identified as Damian told our correspondent that many people could not sleep in the community as sounds of gunshot rend the air for a while.

He said, “In fact throughout the night, we had our hearts in our mouth as sporadic gunshots, not heard before, took over our environment. As I am talking to you now, not even a chicken is outside.”

Another resident earlier on Wednesday, some persons went round the community, asking people to observe the sit-at-home order of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

IPOB has asked South East residents to remain indoors any time its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, is arraigned in court.

Kanu, who is standing trial, is being expected to be arraigned in court on Wednesday.

When contacted over the fresh Imo incident, Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Mike Abattam, asked our correspondent to call back because he was at a meeting.
