An attack carried out by unknown gunmen in Anara, Isiala Mbano Local Government Area of Imo State on Tuesday night, November 9, has left at least five people dead.
An eyewitness identified simply as Damian, told Daily Trust that many people could not sleep in the community as the gunmen shot sporadically for a while.
“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 told the publication that some persons went round the community, asking people to observe the sit-at-home order of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
