Media reports revealed that some unknown gunmen recently stormed the APGA party’s rally ground in Anambra State with 4 vehicles and a few motorcycles. Details of the incident disclosed that the gunmen came in the following four vehicles:
- Ford van (with unidentified plate number due to fire outbreak)
- Toyota RAV4 (with plate number JJJ 434 FP)
- Lexus RX 350 (with plate number EKY 765 EX)
- A second Toyota car
The reports claim that the unknown gunmen exchanged fire with the security personnel including police officers and some men of the Nigerian Army as well. Fortunately, the security officers were able to subdue the attack because they had an upper hand with their “superior” firepower. Upon noticing the superiority of the security personnel, the gunmen were said to have run inside the premises of a hospital that was on the other side of the APGA campaign ground. This was the moment when the security forces had to stop shooting so as not to harm innocent civilians in the hospital.
