Speaking to Channels Television on the telephone on Saturday, Public Relations Of The Ebonyi State Police Command, Chris Amyanwu confirmed the ugly incident.

News had filtered in that gunmen on a motorbike stormed a meeting being held by some persons in the community said to be APC members and opened fire on the attendees leading to the death of some persons.

However, the police spokesman said the scene of the attack was not a gathering of members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the local government area but a meeting being attended by some persons in the community.

He called members of the public to disregard stories making the rounds that those killed were of the ruling APC in the area.
