South East Nigeria: Fresh Fears Over Return Of ‘Unknown Gunmen’

A whirlwind of insecurity is back in the South East Nigeria, with the return of gunmen in the region. Tagged ‘unknown gunmen,’ they have once again imposed an atmosphere of fear, anxiety and uncertainty on the zone.

In the past four weeks, none of the five states of the zone has been spared the gale of killings by gunmen. At least, 15 persons have been murdered in cold blood by gun-wielding men with no trace of the perpetrators in Anambra, Enugu and Ebonyi, while the situation in Imo has been more precarious.

In the face of all the killings, former Military Administrator of Delta State, Air Commodore Luke Ochulor (rtd) has blamed the spate of insecurity in the country on selfish desires of Nigerian leaders who, according to him, are only thinking of the next election rather than the problem at hand. He expressed regrets that the situation if not curtailed would take much toll on the people of the zone.
