There was tension in the Akpawfu Community in the Nkanu East Local Area of Enugu State on Thursday as gunmen reportedly dislodged the residents of Ishiagu Akpawfu and Ajame Ameze autonomous communities after killing the Palace Secretary of Ajame.
It was gathered that the gunmen killed the palace Secretary, Chukwuma Nnamuoke, on Sunday night before they went wild on Monday, destroying the properties of those they described as saboteurs.
Sources told our Correspondent that the gunmen were suspected members of the Eastern Security Network from the community whose security agencies identified and destroyed their houses and properties.
“So those they unleashed attacks on are residents they suspected to have assisted and provided security agencies information about them.
“They have killed four people so far and injured several others that are currently in the hospital bed,” the source said.
When contacted on the telephone, the Traditional ruler of Ajame Ameze, Akpawfu Autonomous Community, Igwe Christopher Nnamani confirmed the unfortunate incident, pleading with the State Government and security agencies to come to the aid of the community.
