JUST IN: Gunmen kidnap a paramount ruler in Plateau

Two people are presumed dead in Enugu State after an attack by unknown gunmen on Tuesday morning.

The gunmen attacked an Army checkpoint on the Obeagu-Amodu road in Enugu South Local Government Area of Enugu State, according to reports.

This is not the first time gunmen were attacking security agencies along that axis. The frequent attacks led to the deployment of the combined team of security operatives.

However, it was gathered that the gunmen stormed the area again in two Lexus Jeeps and one Toyota Sienna bus around 7:25 a.m.
