Unknown gunmen suspected to be herdsmen on Sunday attacked some Ebonyi communities, killing at least 30 persons.
The gunmen attacked Odoke, Ndiobasi and Obakotara communities in Ebonyi local government area.
Sources in the area said the gunmen struck the three communities around 3am on Sunday morning.
A resident in the area, Uchenna Okpokwu said the herdsmen invaded with guns and machetes.
“They came into Ndiobasi village and started slaughtering the people. After slaughtering them, they entered Odoke, from that Odoke, they went to Obapta”.
“Currently, people that were slaughtered in Ndiobasi are up to 30 according to the video clips on the incident but Odoke and Obapta are very far and nobody was able to entered those two villages to capture those that were killed.
“When I received call from one of my villagers over the attack, he told me that the herdsmen are currently at Ojaba forest and that place is their hideout because there is no other way for them to escape.
“The herdsmen are currently in that forest as at the time I was called on phone”
“I was told our local government Chairman went with some security men but couldn’t get to the affected villages. If there is a way security agents will be sent to the affected villages, it will be good.
“Currently, I have been trying to reach my family members on phone but their lines are not through and all of them are in the village.”
