Two men have been killed by gunmen who invaded Etekwuru community in the Ohaji/Egbema Local Government Area of Imo State around 4am on Wednesday.

The assailants also destroyed properties and left some villagers injured before leaving the area.

The reason for the assault was not ascertained as of the time of filing this report but it was learnt that the community was currently in a state of panic.

The traditional ruler of the community, Eze Kenneth Okereke, who confirmed the attack on Wednesday morning, called on security agents to come to the rescue of his subjects.


Some gunmen had on October 21 burnt the palace and official vehicle of the traditional of the community when they invaded his home in an attempt to kill him.

The monarch who wrote a letter to the state governor, Hope Uzodinma, requesting help, disclosed that he was in exile owing to the destruction of his palace.
