There are unconfirmed reports that some of the victims died.
The Eastern Updates also sighted graphic images of some of the victims with deadly machete cuts.
A source hinted that the victims were rushed to the Bishop Shanahan Hospital, Nsukka, from where they were referred to the National Orthopedic Hospital, Enugu.
The police are yet to issue an official statement on the attack.
The Eastern Updates recalls that a few years back, Nimbo, in the same council area, suffered a similar attack, which left many dead.
