Unknown gunmen have carried out several attacks that resulted in the deaths of innocent people of the states.

Recall that unknown gunman was reported to have attacked APC and APGA campaigners in the state and killed 2 people.

The recent attack by the gunmen in the State also led to the death of Dr. Chike Akunyili, the husband of late Director-General of NAFDAC, Prof. Dora Akunyili. Security formations have also been targeted by unknown gunmen in their attacks.

This is coming when Anambra State is preparing for the governorship election in the State scheduled to hold on November 6, 2021.
