At least two persons have been reportedly shot dead and a Sienna bus burnt by hoodlums said to be enforcing the Monday sit-at-home in Enugu.

Driver of the burnt Sienna, who escaped narrated how the hoodlums stormed the park while he was still waiting for passengers to fill the vehicle.

The driver, who is used to loading very early every Monday to beat the sit-at-home directive, said he was standing a distance away from his vehicle when the gunmen arrived in a mini-bus.

He said he felt they were armed robbers and continued to move away from the vicinity as quick as he could.

By the time he looked back to see what was happening, his Sienna was up in flames.

Two persons were reported to have been shot dead during the attack which lasted few minutes.

One of the victims is suspected to be a passenger.

Enugu Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) ASP Daniel Ndukwe could not be reached as at press time as his phone didn’t connect.
