The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) Command Umuahia, has been reportedly attacked by unknown gunmen.

The headquarters of the security agency located in the Ubakala axis of Enugu/Port Harcourt Expressway, Umuahia, was reportedly attacked by the hoodlums at about 21:25pm on Saturday, May 29th 2021.

The gunmen were said to have bombed the Immigration office and killed some officers on duty, while vehicles within their office vicinity were also wet ablaze.

The attack is suspected to have been carried out by members of the Eastern Security Network (ESN), a paramilitary wing of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), a separatist group agitating to restore an independent state of Biafra in the South East of Nigeria through an independence referendum.

It is gathered that they hoodlums bombed the building and opened fire on personnel of the service killing many officers in the process, few hours after they attacked the Police State Criminal And Investigation Department (SCID) Umuahia located in Umuagu, Umuahia.

The gunmen, numbering over 50, were half-naked while some were seen hanging live cock around their neck and many armed with AK47 rifles.
