The Police in Enugu on Monday confirmed the death of an unidentified male traveller after gunmen attacked a Sienna vehicle in the state.

The command spokesperson, Daniel Ndukwe, said in an interview in Enugu that the traveller was killed when the yet-to-be identified gunmen attacked.

It was gathered that the traveller had boarded the Sienna vehicle heading to Onitsha within the early hours of April 11, at the Holy Ghost Roundabout axis of Enugu metropolis.

“Yet-to-be identified miscreants, operating in a mini-bus, shot an unidentified male traveller and in the process torched a Sienna vehicle around Holy Ghost Roundabout axis in the early morning hours of today.

“The victim was immediately moved to the hospital for treatment by police operatives, who responded to a distress call on the incident.

“He, however, was later confirmed dead by doctors on duty and deposited in the mortuary for preservation and autopsy,” Mr Ndukwe said.

The spokesman said that a manhunt for the assailants had been launched, while “The said area, including other parts of the state, remains relatively peaceful.”

The gunmen, according to the News Agency of Nigeria, might be members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra trying to enforce the Monday sit-at-home directive of the group.
