Eyewitnesses told journalists, that the gunmen invaded those areas and opened fire on the victims and left.
When contacted, the State Police Public Relations Officer, Ikenga Tochukwu, could not confirm the incidents, as he said the details were sketchy
Rather, he said the command would talk about the incidents on Monday when they must have gotten a clear picture of what transpired.
However, one of the senior police officers in the state who did not want to be quoted told newsmen that the Isulo incident was true.
But the source failed to confirm the other two locations, saying, “I’ve not received the signals of those ones.”
Meanwhile, tension has heightened in Anambra State following the constant killings of persons on daily basis by gunmen.
