Eziama-Uli is one of the border towns of Anambra State close to the Orlu area of Imo State.

A source in the area told the newspaper that the people of the community have been living in fear because of the invasion of the area by unknown gunmen.

When contacted, the spokesperson for the Anambra State Police Command, Ikenga Tochukwu requested that the report be forwarded to him for verification. However, efforts to reach him afterwards proved abortive.

KanyiDaily recalls that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) had recently accused Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, of being behind the killing of innocent citizens in the South-East.
