There was tension on Sunday night after gunmen shot not less than four motorists in a robbery attack in Owerri, Imo State.

It was gathered that the incident happened at Orji, on Owerri- Okigwe Road very close to the Orji Divisional Police Headquarters.

It was further reported that one of the motorists that were shot was driving an unmarked security vehicle.

The driver was in the vehicle when the gunmen double-crossed and shot him before attacking other vehicles, including commercial buses.

The incident ended commercial activities in the area with people drinking at nearby bars running for their lives.

Three gun-wielding suspects were seen robbing vehicles as other motorists either turned back or abandoned their vehicles on the expressway and ran away.

The suspect shot indiscriminately, as they fled.

The incident was confirmed by the spokesman of the state police command, Orlando Ikeokwu.

He said that the police have evacuated the victims to Federal Medical Center, Orji.
