The current return of the frightening unknown gunmen’s actions in the South-East geopolitical zones is getting concerning.

In the aftermath of the #EndSARS protests in 2020, unknown gunmen became a phenomena in the zone, reaching an alarming high until mid-2021, before beginning to display a declining trajectory before the end of the same year.

With recent incidents in some communities in the zone, particularly in Enugu, Imo, Ebonyi, and, more recently, Abia (a previously relatively peaceful state), it is clear that the unknown gunmen are back on the loose in the region that prided itself on being the most peaceful, enterprising, and resourceful in the country.
