Gunmen paint Ebonyi with blood, kill lawyer, 9 others.

No fewer than 10 persons including policemen were Thursday killed when gunmen invaded the Isu and Onicha Igboeze communities, the Onicha local government area of the state.

In the invasion, while two Policemen were reportedly killed in Isu, others were killed in Onicha Igboeze.

It was also said that two Lawyers were also killed by the gunmen.

It was gathered that the two Lawyers were passing with a vehicle and ran into the gunmen who operated on a Lexus SUV.

The gunmen were said to have killed the Lawyers, burnt the Jeep they used and left the area with the Lawyers vehicle.

There have been killings in Onicha Igboeze in the last three months by gunmen and security agents.

Last month, a woman and daughter of the Traditional Ruler of the community, Elizabeth Agwu was hit by a bullet when policemen invaded the community to arrest a suspect.

The woman died as a result of the bullet which got her on the abdomen.

Ebonyi State Police Public Relations Officer for Ebonyi, DSP Loveth, confirmed the latest invasion but said details of the incident were still sketchy.

She however noted that the State Commissioner of Police, Aliyu Garba has dispatched a team to the area.
