Unknown gunmen have reportedly attacked a military checkpoint at Obeagu-Amodu Road in the Enugu South Local Government Area of Enugu State.

The checkpoint in Obeagu had come under this kind of attack before, which was one of the reasons for the combined security presence in the area.

Attempts to get the comments of the police proved abortive as the Police Daniel Ndukwe, Public Relations Officer in the state, did not take calls or respond to text messages for confirmation.
