There was pandemonium in Obollo-Afor, the headquarters of Udenu Local Government Area in Enugu State as hooded gunmen enforcing the suspended IPOB sit-at-home order attacked residents in the early hours of today.
The hooded gunmen who came on motorcycles were seen beating traders who opened their shops for business while other residents were seen scampering for safety as the gunmen chased them with whips.
A tricycle was also burnt by the hoodlums.
It was gathered that members of Udenu Central Neighbourhood Watch took to their heels on sighting the gunmen. A Sienna car belonging to the group was destroyed by the hoodlums.
One of the traders said that a military team arrived the town around 8:30 a.m. to ensure that normalcy is restored.
