5. All Youth Leaders of Autonomous Communities in Eha-amufu.

6. All Clergy from Eha-amufu.

7. All Heads of Neighbourhood Watch and Forest Guards from Autonomous Communities in Eha-amufu.

The attack came barely five days after three members of the state Neighbourhood Watch were reportedly killed while pursuing kidnappers to rescue the wife and 11-year-old daughter of Dr Eugene Edeoga, younger brother of the Enugu State Commissioner for Environment, Chijioke Edeoga, that were abducted on January 1, 2022.

People were reportedly seen carrying their belongings and running into the town from the troubled settlements.

At the residence of Chief Eric Ebe, one of the stakeholders in the town, over 50 women and children who reportedly escaped from the troubled farm settlements were seen in the compound.

Ebe, in an interview with a correspondent of Peoples Voice, described the invasion of his community as horrific and unwarranted. He said since January 1, no fewer than 10 persons have been killed in his community while many others were kidnapped for ransom.

A community leader, Chief Moses Olinya, lamented that more than 24 hours after security agencies were informed of the invasion and carnage done, they were yet to see any security personnel. According to him, the suspects invaded the community around 10am.
