Igboeze North and its neighbouring Igboeze South LGA had been under attack recently by unknown gunmen leading to the state government imposing a 6 pm to 6 am curfew and banning commercial motorcyclists in the affected LGAs.

Since the outbreak of violence in the area over a month ago, there has been heavy security presence in the area to check the continued attacks but the battle has continued to linger.
