ARMED ATTACK

 


IMO STATE

Imo: Easter turns bloody in Orlu as
unknown gunmen kill one, destroy property.

It was a black Easter Sunday in Orlu Local Government Area of Imo State as unknown gunmen reportedly went on a rampage in some locations, killing one person and injuring several
people.

DAILY POST gathered that the shooting started from Banana junction
and then extended to the popular Nkwu-Ito Junction and its environs.

Vehicular movements were restricted while vehicles and other property were reportedly affected as the unknown gunmen shot sporadically before the security operatives challenged them.

A community source told our correspondent that the bandits alleged to be Eastern Security Network (ESN) members came out to challenge the Ebubeagu Security Outfit as the latter was
said to have arrived in Orlu last Saturday.

He said their presence infuriated the gunmen who allegedly came out to challenge them today.

The source further said that a life was lost in the attack, adding that the incident which occurred at about 12:30 pm, forced residents to take cover in their various houses as motorists
completely avoided the Orlu main town.

According to him, the gunmen allegedly shot at the tires of a vehicle belonging to the Nigerian Army near the Judiciary High Court Orlu. Ukwu Aki is a popular brothel in Amaifeke
Orlu. The popular Inland Guest House Orlu was set ablaze by security operatives while trying to restore normalcy in the area.

One Emeka Uba explained that trouble started when the unknown gunmen in their numbers were moving to some places within the area.

Uba also told DAILY POST that, “one person in front of a Lexus saloon car was shot dead and his car destroyed.”

DAILY POST gathered that passengers heading to Orlu from Owerri Akwakuma Fly Over to be precise were all stranded as they waited for hours.

Meanwhile, the police authority is yet to react to the attack as spokesman Michael Abattam did not pick his phone calls.

ANAMBRA STATE

Gunmen visit eatery on Easter day, rob
fun seekers.

Unidentified gunmen, on Easter Sunday, visited Oko community, close to the Federal Polytechnic, Oko, invading a fast food joint.

DAILY POST gathered that the gunmen came into Sophia Fast Food, but failed to harm the fun-seekers, who were obviously enjoying themselves for the Easter celebration.

A source said they simply dispossessed all customers and staff of the eatery of their phones and left the area without any challenge, despite an armoured car and security personnel
positioned in the area.

A Facebook user, Iyke Orji said: “Nobody was killed, nobody was shot.

“Even the new police armoured tank Governor Soludo stationed at Oko Police station with new policemen didn’t repel them.

“They came to Sophia Fast Foods Oko, yes, fast food. They collected all the phones of people eating there. They now set fire in the frontage of the fast food joint.

“Sophia fast foods just opened a new branch in Ekwulobia and people are thinking if it was a calculated attempt by competitors,” Orji said.

Attempt to get confirmation from the Police Public Relations Officer of Anambra State Police Command, DSP Toochukwu Ikenga failed as his phone was not reachable at the moment.
