Gunmen strike again, shoot four motorists in Imo

No fewer than four motorists were shot during an armed robbery attack at Orji area of Owerri, the Imo State capital on Sunday evening.

NEWSCASTARS.COM gathered from DAILY POST reports that one of the victims was driving an unmarked security vehicle when the gunmen double-crossed him and shot him on the left shoulder before attacking other vehicles, including commercial motorists.

The robbers shot sporadically in the air, scaring both residents and policemen at the Orji Divisional Headquarters, along Okigwe road as five commercial and private vehicles were robbed and dispossessed of their valuables.

Orlando Ikeokwu, the Imo State Police Public Relations Officer said that the victims have been taken to the Federal Medical Centre, Owerri where they are currently receiving treatment but no life was lost.
