Two naval officers have been feared killed during a gun duel with suspected members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in Anambra State.

The incident, according to eyewitnesses, occurred at Awkuzu, Oyi local government area with residents scampering to safety.

It was the same spot where three naval men died in a gun duel with gunmen last year.

It was gathered that the gunmen, in five vehicles, stormed the place where the security operatives were stationed and opened fire.

When contacted, Anambra police spokesman, Ikenga Tochukwu, said he had not received detailed reports on the incident.

However, he confirmed there was heavy shooting at the time of filing this report, adding security operatives were being deployed to the area.
