The attack came in the heat of the supplementary governorship election holding in Ihiala.

It was gathered that the gunmen were seeking to enter Ihiala through Imo State, as Mbosi and Orsumoghu where the attack happened are border towns, with communities in Imo State.

NAIJALOADED reporter who was covering the supplementary governorship election in Ihiala ran into a barricade set up by joint security operatives at Mbosi/Orsumoghu junction.

The joint security operatives comprising of mobile policemen, Army, Navy and other security agencies stopped journalists and after a brief search, asked the journalists to return, on the insistence that a gun battle was on, ahead.

Two unidentified policemen and a soldier who spoke to our reporter said, “You have to go back for your own good. For three hours now, we have been exchanging fire with your IPOB brothers.

“Our men are in the bush now, and it will be risky for you to take this route,” the security operatives advised journalists.

When NAIJALOADED reached the Anambra State Commissioner of Police, CP Echeng Eworo, he refused to confirm the development, asking that the reporter call back later.

NAIJALOADED also noticed a team of security men loaded in 10 Hilux vans, heading to Mbosi/Orsumoghu junction as reinforcement, as at the time of filing this report.
