Alleged members of Indigenous People of Biafra's (IPOB) Eastern Security Network (ESN) reportedly attacked an Imo school today September 13, stopped students from writing their Junior Secondary School Examination and set motorcycles belonging to staff and students on fire.

The attack at Comprehensive Secondary School in Nkume, Njaba Local Government Area of Imo state, occurred while the students were preparing to sit for English in the ongoing JSSCE.

The students and teachers fled in different directions as the gunmen shot sporadically and set their motorcycles on fire.

It is also coming at a time the proscribed group declared that a sit-at-home will be observed in the South-East region on September 14. The declaration was made to drum up support for the release of their arrested leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
