Unknown gunmen on Sunday attacked a political meeting in Enugu West Senatorial District, Enugu State threatening to stop the election in 2023.

In a video that went viral on social media, the gunmen who shot sporadically to disperse politicians at the meeting was held saying “no election will hold in Biafra land.

Though, some of the politicians escaped as the gunmen stormed the area while those that were nit able to escape were beaten and molested.

Those that could not escape were seen in the video captured and asked to lie down by the gunmen who marched on their back and queried them on what the gathering was all about.

A voice in the video said “ “What are you doing here? You are here for party politics like you do every four years. Which party?

We’ve stopped the campaign on Biafra land. We don’t want anybody coming out for anything campaign because will be no election in this country anymore,”

“You want to bring Fulani back to our place? We chased them away and you want to bring them back.

“Don’t you like how we chased away the Fulanis? Why do you want to bring them back? You want to bring the problem into Enugu West again. We have asked you, people, to stop these party campaigns you are doing on our land. You are all here for party campaigns. You are the ones destroying Enugu West,”.

When contacted, the Police spokesman of Enugu State police command, Daniel Ndukwe said he’s yet to see the video of the attack. (Sunday Independent)
