At least 10 persons including policemen were killed by Unknown Gunmen who invaded Isu and Onicha Igboeze communities in Onicha local government area of the state.

An eyewitness said that two Policemen were killed in the Isu invasion while others were killed in Onicha Igboeze community.

According to the eyewitness, two Lawyers were also killed by the gunmen.

The Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Loverth Odah who confirmed the invasion said that details of the incidents were still sketchy.

DSP Loverth Odah said that the State Commissioner of Police, CP Aliyu Garba has dispatched a team of policemen to the area.

It was gathered that two Lawyers were passing with a vehicle and ran into the gunmen who operated on a Lexus Jeep.

The gunmen were said to have killed the Lawyers, burnt the Jeep they used and left the area with the Lawyers vehicle.

It would be recalled that there have been killings in Onicha Igboeze in the last three months by gunmen and security agents.

Last month, the daughter of Traditional Ruler of the community, Elizabeth Agwu was hit by a bullet when policemen invaded the community to arrest a suspect.

The woman later died as a result of the bullet wound that hit her on the abdomen. The suspect that the Policemen came to arrest was later shot dead.

Seven travellers were also burnt alive inside their vehicle they were travelling along the Onicha Igboeze road during the Sit-At-Home order.
