Unidentified gunmen have stormed the Comprehensive Secondary School, Nkume in Njaba Local Government Area of Imo State Nigeria after a sit-at-home order had been declared by the self-acclaimed Indigenous People of Biafra.
The men were reported to have invaded the school premises while some students were participating in the ongoing 2021 West African School Certificate Examination and violently stopped the exams.
Eyewitnesses have not been able to give detailed accounts about the assault by the gunmen but it was understood that about five hooligans destroyed some properties in the area during the attack.
The Police command's Public Relations Officer in Imo state, Mike Abattam, has not answered any inquiry about the situation and has not confirmed the incident.
The self-acclaimed IPOB had previously ordered that the region must observe a sit-at-home order every Monday in support of its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who has been in the custody of the Department of State Services for some time.
