Unknown gunmen suspected to be cultists were on rampage in Akwuke, Enugu South Local Government Area of Enugu State, shooting dead a pregnant woman and a vigilante member.

The hoodlums were also said to have shot a secondary school girl in the leg who is now receiving treatment in an undisclosed hospital.

According to SaharaReporters, it was gathered the incident took place on Saturday night around 8pm.

Three of hoodlums were said to have stormed a drinking joint and ordered everybody to lie down.

The owner of the joint, who also lived in the same compound, had sensed danger and escaped through the back door but his pregnant wife was not so lucky as the men pursued her into her kitchen and shot her dead.

A young man, whose name was given as Nonso, one of the vigilante members, who was at the joint tried to escape but was also shot dead.

The pregnant woman’s house help, who was also helping out in the joint was shot in the leg and is now receiving treatment at a hospital, SaharaReporters was told.

According to community sources, the gunmen had earlier gone into a compound inside Akwuke and demanded to see another young man but the man was not at home prompting them to come for the owner of the drinking joint, Hon.
