Unknown gunmen have killed a soldier and five other persons in Anaocha and Nnewi South Local Government Areas of Anambra State.
It was gathered that five of the victims were killed at a restaurant in Obiofia village, Osumenyi, in Nnewi South.

The assailants, armed with automatic rifles, cutlasses, and other dangerous weapons, invaded a military checkpoint in Agulu on Saturday and opened fire on soldiers, killing one in the process.
A source told Punch that the gunmen carried out the operation with over three exotic vehicles suspected to have been snatched from the owners.
“They confronted the soldiers for over 10 minutes, causing residents of the area to scamper to safety, and after a long gun battle, the men overpowered the soldiers, and they had to withdraw,” the source narrated.
