More than ten people, including two people who were said to be legal practitioners, have been killed by gunmen in the Ebonyi State capital.
The gunmen were said to have infiltrated the Isu and Onicha Igboeze communities in the Onicha local government area, where they opened fire intermittently.

In Isu, two police officers were reportedly killed, who were among the victims of the attack.
The other victims were killed in Onicha Igboeze, which is located in the same region.
According to sources, the two lawyers were driving by when they came face to face with the gunmen, who were riding in a Lexus Jeep.
The gunmen are said to have killed the attorneys, set fire to the Jeep they were driving, and then fled the scene with the attorneys’ vehicle.
Gunmen and security agents have killed several people in Onicha Igboeze over the last three months, according to police.
Last month, Elizabeth Agwu, a woman and the daughter of the community’s Traditional Ruler, was struck by a bullet while police officers were invading the community to apprehend a suspected criminal.
The woman died as a result of the bullet, which struck her in the abdomen and struck her brain.
The suspect who the police officers arrived to apprehend was later shot and killed.
On the Onicha Igboeze road in August, a group of about seven travellers were burned alive while riding in the vehicle with which they were travelling.
Loveth Odah, a police spokesperson, confirmed the latest invasion, but stated that details of the incident were still sketchy.
She did, however, mention that Aliyu Garba, the Commissioner of Police, had dispatched a team to the area.
