Residents of oil-rich communities of Ohaji/Egbema local government areas of Imo State were gripped with fear Monday as unrepentant militants threatened to attack them.

Their threat cast doubts on the recent peace accord reached by Governor Rochas Okorocha and some repentant militants, who surrendered their arms last week.
Following the development, some monarchs from the affected communities, who had fled their palaces because of the militants’ threats on their lives and attacks, returned home.
The AUTHORITY gathered from community leaders in one of the troubled areas that the “Red Scorpion” armed gang has started regrouping for more attacks against the people and oil companies operating in the communities.
The sources said that some of the militants who surrendered their arms are also joining in the threat, insisting to continue their attack if the state government fail to keep its promise.
Meanwhile, one of the militants’ leaders, simply known as “Charleyboy” who the Nigerian Army accused of killing some residents, allegedly in Rivers State. Charleyboy, according to a source, was hiding in Omoku, Rivers State, while others identified as Felix and Emenike were said to have returned to Imo.
Governor Okorocha while receiving arms surrendered by the militants in the restive areas had promised to welcome all the members who genuinely lay down their arms. He, however, vowed to deal decisively with unrepentant ones. (The AUTHORITY)
