Nonsochukwu Uwa, Owerri
The killing spree by unknown gunmen in Imo State continued with the killing of three persons in two separate communities of Orogwe and Irete in Owerri West Local Government Area.
An eyewitness who confirmed this to newsmen in Owerri said the incidents happened between Monday and Wednesday this week.
He also said a former Enugu Psychiatrist Director popularly known as Jojo, was attacked and his vehicle snatched from him.
The reason for the attack was linked to the Simon Ekpa’s announced sit-at-home order towards the end of this month.
The eyewitness said: “It’s sad Ndegwu, Orogwe both neighboring communities in Owerri West no longer sleep with their two eyes closed. Yesterday, two people were killed at Orogwe while one was killed at Ndegwu by the same attackers.
“A former Enugu Psychiatrist Director had his vehicle snatched from him last Monday.”
Reacting, the Imo state Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Henry Okoye, said he was yet to receive an official report on the above cases.
