Unknown gunmen attack travellers along Four Corners Enugu

Udentified gunmen have attacked a commercial vehicle and opened fire on travellers along Four Corner-Udi Road in Enugu State.

Survivors said the gunmen deflated their tires, forcing the commercial vehicle to stop, and they shot at passengers.

Aneyewitness said the driver managed to escape, so did a number of passengers.

A video of the incident shows a casualty bleeding from his leg where he had been shot as nurses in a dark hospital used torch light to treat injured passengers.

The attack was said to have happened on Sunday, November 20-2002.

The passengers said they were travelling in a Sienna from Abakiliki in Ebonyi State, to Awka, in Anambra state, when they were attacked.

Our source said a joint patrol team stationed in the 4-Corner/Udi by-pass exchanged fire with the gunmen disrupting the operation.

Heavy police presence is being mounted on the road in the wake of recent attacks on the radio.

A close source said the thickness and presence of bushes in the area has not helped matters but a top police source said security agents are on top of the situation.
