Unrest in Anambra as gunmen scare residents over sit-at-home violation
FCG reports that there was a heavy unrest in some areas of Anamabra state over the fear of UNKNOWN GUNMEN.
FCG gathered that unknown gunmen opened fire at the popular Nkpor junction near Onitsha and Igbariam close to Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University campus Friday, forcing parents who earlier dropped their children in the schools hurriedly rushed back to withdraw them.
Fear increased as people close up their shops, filling stations and markets in Awka and Onitsha also closed immediately the gunshots were heard in various parts of the state.
The gunmen pursued commercial motorcycle and keke operators, as well as private cars and shuttle buses from Igbariam junction at Awkuzu.
FCG recalled that there have been one week sit-at-home order, which was seriously enforced in some South-Eastern states, except Anambra state.
