Eyewitnesses told The Razor News, 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 incident, as he said, the details were sketchy

Rather, he said the command would talk about the incidents Monday, when they must have got the clear picture of what transpired.

However, one of the Senior Police Officers in the State, who did not want to be quoted, told The Razor News that the Isulo incident was true.

The source said that the woman and her children did not look like people from Igboland.

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.

On Saturday, the lifeless body of Governor Charles Soludo’s House of Assembly representative, Okechukwu Okoye, was found, while the head was hung somewhere, few days after he was kidnapped.
