A viral video circulating online has showed yet to be identified two victims lying lifeless at the front of Enugu State University Teaching Hospital, Parklane.

Others were shot at the New Market Area. A police car was also set ablaze within the same location.

Eyewitness recounted that the gunmen, numbering over ten, stormed the area as early as 6 a.m. before shooting into the air to scare people off the street.

They are marching from one part of the State to another without resistance.

Following the development, many residents have been forced indoors for fear of attack.
