Enugu State University, ESUT, Invaded By Gunmen, 3 Students Shot

THREE students of the Enugu State University of Science and Technology, ESUT, Agbani were, Friday night, shot and wounded by suspected armed bandits who invaded their hostel.

The students were undergoing treatment at the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital, UNTH, Ituku-Ozalla, Enugu, where they were rushed to in the early hours of yesterday.
The father of one of the students said  his son was undergoing surgery at the hospital.

He said  the student was shot in the stomach and it was suspected that some bullets were lodged in his abdomen which doctors were battling to remove.
The two other victims were also undergoing surgery at the hospital while efforts were being made to contact their parents.

The Unique Hostel, where the incident occurred and other hostels within the Agbani permanent site of the university, according to a  source, have been placed under security watch as it was suspected that the gunmen could be members of a secret cult.

To forestall a reprisal attack, the source said, the management had taken measures to beef up security at the hostels with plain-clothes policemen deployed to strategic locations.
Enugu State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Ebere Amaraizu, who confirmed the attack, said  preliminary investigations revealed that the gunmen could be “student-robbers”, assuring that the police would do everything to get to the root of the matter.
