A source explained that the gunmen were unable to withstand the superior firepower of the soldiers and police officers and quickly ran into the premises of Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital which was directly opposite the campaign ground.

In the video which has now done viral, passersby were seen raising their hands to show they had no weapon. Students of the school in white uniforms were also spotted running at some point in the video before a gunshot was fired.

The Anambra State Police Command has requested the people in the area to help lookout for people with gunshots and report them.

It has also asked hospitals and other health facilities in both Ihiala Local Government Area and neighboring communities in Imo State to report
