A teenage girl has been killed after gunmen suspected to be herders opened fire on students of St Paul’s College, Eke, in Udi Local Government Area of Enugu State.

It was gathered that the incident happened on Thursday night, November 9, 2023, while the students were heading home.

A voice in a video posted from an undisclosed hospital said three other students were also hit by bullets.

“Fulani herdsmen attacked our students, they were going home after school; one of them was shot dead; four students were shot, one died instantly; they have done enough," the man explained.

“See the corpse of the little student they have murdered; this one is unconscious. We are praying that God will sustain her; she sustained four bullet wounds. This was done by the Fulanis operating at Eke-Egede Road; these are the ones that survived; the government should come to our rescue. Our place is now a death zone.”
