The movement of vehicles and passengers along the Enugu Abakaliki expressway has been suspended over the mass shooting at the Ezilo axis of the highway by gunmen

It was not immediately clear those responsible for the shootings.

Governor David Umahi had on Tuesday confirmed the killing of two persons in a renewed boundary dispute between Exilic community and neighboring Iyionu community.

Both communities are in Ishielu local government area of the state.

It could not be immediately concluded if the shooting is connected with the dispute.

A passenger by Afam Cyprian, who was traveling to Enugu, said travelers had been stranded at Okpoto for about one hour.

He said military patrol vans were regularly moving the highway and they had told them not to advance.

“Many people are looking for another route to take. Some have gone back to take Afikpo Road. I am looking for a way to go back to Abakaliki,” he said.

Police spokesperson, Loveth Odah confirmed the shootings.

She said the police commissioner, Aliyu Garba has dispatched police patrol teams to restore peace and open up the road for users.

She however said the shooting could not have been related to the boundary dispute as the disputed area is not close to the highway.
