The community is in Owerri north local government area and is less than 3 kilometers from the state capital.
A video emerged on Tuesday afternoon showing two heavily armed men walking in the middle of the deserted road.
A young man who appeared unconnected with the hoodlums was seen walking by the side of the road.
There was not interruption from any quarters or any security personnel insight.
