Some persons who attended a political gathering in Enugu West senatorial district of Enugu State at the weekend were attacked and molested by gunmen who  threatened  that no election would hold in any part of “Biafra land” come 2023.

In a video that went viral on Sunday, the gunmen who drove to the venue of the meeting in a mini-Bus were seen shooting repeatedly as participants fled for their lives with some sustaining injuries in the process. 

A few men, who could not escape at the time of the invasion, were captured and asked to lie down in the mud as some women were heard wailing.

They were beaten, molested and harassed amidst allegation that they were trying to “bring back Fulani” into Enugu West.

The heavily armed attackers were not masked but the carefully ensured that their faces did not appear in the video in order not to be identified. 

In the 4:50 minutes video, it could be seen that vehicles and motorbikes were smashed by the gunmen, who threatened to deal with anyone organising a political gathering on Biafra land.

“You want to bring Fulani into our place? We chased them away and you want to bring them back.

“What are you doing here? You are here for party politics like you do every four years. Which party?

“Don’t you like how we chased away the Fulanis? Why do you want to bring them back? You want to bring problem into Enugu West again. We have asked you people to stop these party campaigns you are doing on our land. You are all here for party campaigns. You are the ones destroying Enugu West. Thunder will fire you. Say yes sir!” the gunmen said in different voices.

When asked what should be their punishment if they tried to organise another political gathering, one of the men said, “kill me.”

“We’ve stopped political campaign on Biafra land. We don’t want anybody coming out for anything campaign. There will be no election in this country anymore,” a background voice said in the video.
