Unknown gunmen have attacked an Army checkpoint at Obeagu-Amodu along Amechi-Agbani Road in Enugu South Local Government Area of Enugu State, killing an unconfirmed number of soldiers and policemen.
According to eyewitnesses, the hoodlums stormed the checkpoint in two Lexus Jeeps and one Toyota Sienna bus.
It was reported that gunmen had earlier attacked the checkpoint three times, with today’s attack making it the fourth.
Sources told journalists that gunmen immediately opened fire at the combined team of Police and Military when they arrived the checkpoint and the number of casualties was still unknown.
Motorists and residents nearby were reported to have scampered for safety as bullets rained like water in their houses during the shooting between the hoodlums and security operatives.
