Tension in Enugu as gunmen kill pregnant woman, shoot school girl

Daredevil gunmen have attacked a drinking joint at Akwuke, Enugu South Local Government Area killing a pregnant woman and a vigilante member while shooting a secondary school student.

According to reports, the gunmen who invaded the joint around 8 pm on Saturday also shot a secondary school girl who is now receiving treatment in an undisclosed hospital.

Narrating what transpired, an eyewitness who pleaded anonymity said; “I was there live and saw everything.  I asked the woman to prepare fish for and I was drinking, waiting for the fish when we had lie down all of you.

“NwaGod, Hon.Onyia was sitting on the other side with Nonso, the vigilante man that was shot.  When they told us to lie down, I quickly moved into one of the rooms and from there, I jumped through the window and they saw me but did not shoot me. It was later I learnt that they shot NwaGod’s wife and shot Nonso, the security man also.  They also shot the girl that is serving in the bear parlour,” he said.

He said that it was only God that saved him because he could have been shot.  He pointed out that others who were at the drinking joint were not hurt because it seemed that they purposely came for the former councillor, Hon. Felix Onyia, alias NwaGod.

“The way they came straight to his house, “NwaGod” and shot his wife when he escaped is an indication that they came purposely for him,” a resident said.

Meanwhile, there is no statement from the concerned authorities at the time of filing this report.
