Enugu sees hell as gunmen go on killing spree 

Rampaging gunmen on Saturday killed two persons and attacked several others in different locations in Enugu State, South-east Nigeria.

The casualties are a woman, who is said to be a food vendor, and a man. The victims were rushed to the Enugu State University Teaching but were dead on arrival.

The gunmen also exchanged fire with police officers, who later took to their heels due to the assailants’ superior power. They also torched a police patrol vehicle after the security operatives retreated.

A gun attack was also said to have taken place at Abakpa Nike in Enugu East Council Area and Holy Ghost Junction in Enugu North Council Area respectively.

The masked terrorists operating on a tricycle are said to have launched their attack on residents at about 6:25am, shooting indiscriminately.

TheCornet reports that the attack is taking place a day after a similar onslaught in Imo State. Among the casualties in the Imo attack was Prince Iheme, the elder brother to Nollywood star Osita Iheme.
