Owerri - Eleven people lost their lives when suspected former militants attacked some communities in Imo State.

The armed thugs stormed the communities in the night when the villagers had gone to sleep and started shooting sporadically, reports The Nation.

The communities are Umuokeduru and Imeni communities, both in Ohaji Egbema Local Government Area of Imo State.

The hoodlums were said to have set most of the buildings ablaze.

They reportedly destroyed and looted every building without resistance.

The ex-militants were said to be angry with the handling of the Amnesty Programme.

Sources said the former agitators attacked the communities of two of their former commanders who were allegedly camped in a hotel by the state government and placed under stipend without their knowledge.

They accused the state government of sidelining majority of them after they renounced militancy and surrendered their arms, in line with the state government’s Amnesty Programme.”
