JUST IN: Gunmen kill three, stir tension in Anambra

There is tension in Awka, Anambra State after gunmen killed three persons in the capital city.

Two persons were gunned down opposite first market at Ifite while one person was killed behind Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu Teaching Hospital, Amaku in Awka South local government area.

An eyewitness, who spoke with The Nation, said the two incidents happened between 4.15-4.30pm on Tuesday

As a result of the development, panic enveloped residents of Awka, who had not witnessed such killings in recent time.

The killings reduced when a section of the community invited the dreaded ‘Bakassi boys’ who stormed the town to tame the tide.

But The Nation gathered that the incident at Ifite happened because some prominent persons in the area resisted the engagement of the security outfit.

When contacted, Anambra spokesman, Ikenga Tochukwu, said he had not been briefed on the issue.

But one of the senior Police officers, who did not want to be quoted, confirmed the incidents.
