Unknown gunmen have set on fire fewer than 15 shops, several trucks and cars at Amorka community in Ihiala Local Government Area of Anambra State.
It was gathered that the incident happened Thursday night.
It was gathered that arsonists, numbering over 10, shot all through the night, while shops in the area were looted in the confusion that ensued.
Akelicious reports that Amorka is a border town to Imo State, which is a trekable distance to most communities in Imo State.
“The shooting caused pandemonium as residents and travellers abandoned their shops and vehicles to scamper for safety.
“The shooting caused heavy gridlock that stretched from Amorka to Mgbidi and Awo-omma in Imo State.
“In the confusion, several shops were looted by hoodlums. Some people say they are IPOB members who were protesting that their leader, Nnamdi Kanu was not released, despite court order,” a source said.
