Confusion in Enugu state as residents were thrown into tension and fear on Wednesday over enforcement of sit-at-home.
It was learnt that unknown gunmen moved round many parts of the State to enforce the one week sit-at-home declared by the Simon Ekpa led faction of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
According to eye witness, the gunmen shot sporadically at the New Market axis of the State, Artisan, Emene, New Haven, Abakpa, Agbani Road and NOWAS.
The gunmen, who had their faces covered with masks, were reported to have operated in a Siena vehicle, as well as tricycles.
Many parents, whose children were already in school, were seen in panic mode.
A combined team of the Army and the Police are said to be on chase of the gunmen.
A helicopter was also seen hovering around major parts of the State.
