School children return home over alleged threat by unknown gunmen in Imo

Some schools in Owerri, the Imo state capital were this morning forced to shut down and send their students back home over the alleged threat to attack them by unknown gunmen.

 

 

A resident in the capital said;

“The various attacks on police stations including the killings of police officers now put fear in the people that Monday’s which usually seen as sit-at-home, could be a dangerous day. That is while you see some streets are almost empty people are just sitting inside their houses. Nobody wants to be killed.”
