While engaged in a tense shootout with the robbers, unidentified gunmen assaulted an army unit in Enugu, killing an army officer.
An eyewitness said that the raid took place early on Thursday morning after he awoke to the sounds of gunfire.
He said that the gunshots were out of usual since they persisted for more than 20 minutes.
“The Army Base is a short distance from my door, thus the gunfire was uncomfortably close. Well, all I can say is that we all need to be extra cautious and watchful because these shooters have decided to start the new month with horror.”
Unfortunately, one of the army officers was killed as the hitted shooting between them got bloody, it was also reported that an army van was set ablaze. the gunmen made away with some bikes belonging to some of the army officers.
The Gunmen took the route of Overall, through Umuhu bridge to Nkalagu road after the operation to escape, while shooting sporadically into the air to scare people away. There is no cause for alarm, there is no cause for panic and most importantly, to all those that ran into the bush and even climbed on top of trees for safety, you can now come down, the situation is calm now.
The eyewitness went further to say that security should be a major priority for everyone in Isi-Uzo LGA and Eha-Amufu right now.
