Eight persons were shot dead by a lone bandit said to be terrorising the oil-bearing community of Mmahu Egbema, headquarters of Ohaji/Egbema Local Government Imo State.

The bandit who is said to be an escapee of Imo Correctional Centre, had stormed the community from a nearby bush and started shooting sporadically, killing eight people in the process.

The President of Egbema Community identified as Romano, said the bandit who hails from the community, had since escaped from the prison.

“Since he escaped from the prison he has been terrorizing the entire community,” he said.
