The death of Ikonso, killed Eastern Security Network Commander by joint Nigerian Security operatives on Saturday seems to have provoked a sleeping lion and left everyone worried.
Both Imo, Anambra, Enugu, Ebonyi, and Rivers states witnessed attacks by yet to be ascertained gunmen, killing many.
Earlier on Monday, it was reported that the gunmen killed five soldiers in Rivers and carted away arms at Abua, Odua Local Government Area while security was holding in government House.
In a similar development, three different places were attacked in Imo State. Five were confirmed dead at the Police Command Headquarters, and one whisked away while another clash was witnessed with Douglas through Ama Awusa, no casualty reported.
In Ebonyi State, four armies were also reported killed by the gunmen at Amasiri Junction in Afikpo South LGA.
At Nenwe Junction in Agwu Local Government of Enugu State, two police were said to have been killed.
