There is panic among Anambra residents as gunmen have written letters to nine local governments, vowing to attack them soon.
They listed Ihiala, Aguata, Nnewi South, Awka North, Awka South, Idemili North, Idemili South, Orumba South, Orumba North and Anambra East as their targets.
The unknown group in a voice note advised the state governor, Prof. Charles Soludo, and security operatives in the state to get ready for action in ‘Biafra Land’.
“We are warning our dear professor that it is time for action and not time to speak big grammar and talking. All the security men occupying should get ready for action.
“Go and tell the President (Muhammadu Buhari) to release our oga, Onyendu, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, or face continuous war – FINAL WARNING.”
The message caused fears in the state as people remained indoors yesterday because of the warning that anyone found between May 17th and 20th would be killed.
Meanwhile, the Anambra State Police Command said it had killed some hoodlums operating and enforcing the sit-at-home in the state.
The suspects were said to be operating around the Ogidi area on the second day of the sit-at-home when they confronted the security operatives.
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, said the command and other sister agencies had been on patrol to maintain law and order in the state.
Ikenga asked the people to go about their normal businesses without any form of intimidation, harassment or worry, assuring them of adequate security.
