Gunmen kill 2 in Enugu

16 August 2012, 15:16

Enugu -  Two persons were killed on Thursday in an early morning shooting by gunmen on the Isuochi/Adelabu streets of Uwani in Enugu.

An eyewitness said that the gunmen besieged the former Enugu Guest House on Isuochi St. in the early hours of Thursday and shot at a young man.

He said few minutes after the shooting, another gun shot was heard at Adelabu St.

The witness said that the guest house was converted to students' hostel two years ago, adding that since then, residents of the area had not known peace.

``There is hardly any fortnight that residents of Isuochi St. will not witness one strange thing or the other from the students living in the house.

``Display of cult activities is the order of the day in the compound,’’ he said.

When contacted for comments, the Police Public Relations Officer, Enugu Police Command, Mr Ebere Amaraizu, confirmed the incident saying that one of the deceased was a policeman.

Amaraizu said the command had commenced investigation into the killings while the area had been placed under surveillance.

He called on residents of the area to go about their normal duties, assuring them of their security.
