Gunmen attacked an army checkpoint on Tuesday in Amodu Awkunanaw, a community in Nkanu West Local Government Area of Enugu State, Nigeria’s South-east.
Two soldiers were said to have been killed in the attack when the gunmen attacked the checkpoint at about 7 a.m.
It was gathered that some soldiers and police officers were at the checkpoint for a joint operation when the gunmen attacked them.
The gunmen, who reportedly stormed the checkpoint in two Lexus SUVs and one Toyota Sienna vehicle, opened fire on the soldiers and police officers.
When contacted, the police spokesperson in the state, Daniel Ndukwe, confirmed the incident.
Mr Ndukwe, however, said he did not have the details because he was yet to be “fully briefed” on the attack.
He said the attackers sustained gunshot injuries during the shootout with the security agencies.
The police have launched a manhunt for the fleeing suspects, he said.
