“Discreet investigation and manhunt have been launched to fish out the armed assailants,” he stated.

He explained that the hoodlums carried out the attack in an ash-colour RX 300 Lexus Jeep, with no registration number.

He added that the gang attacked some persons in a pub at Akwuke Uwani Community in Enugu.

“They shot and killed two victims (a male and a female), while another female victim was shot in her legs.

“The bodies of the two victims were moved to the hospital, where they were confirmed dead by doctors on duty,” Ndukwe further stated.

He noted that their corpses had been deposited at the hospital’s mortuary for preservation and autopsy.

“The third victim was also taken to a hospital and is responding to treatment,” he said.

He urged the residents to assist the police with credible information and intelligence that would aid the speedy arrest of the assailants.
