Their has been sporadic shooting around Federal Polytechnic Oko campus, which has led to the death of one and a gun injury to another, making students run helter skelter for safety as the shooting continued unabated.
EBONYI DAILY NEWS gathered that the incidence which happened around FCMB Bank, close to the popular Tipper Road, witnessed some gun wielding men, who alighted from a motor bike shooting all round, sending students crowded along the bank’s ATM running for safety, including those walking along the ever busy road, which traverse the two major gates of the institution.
When the shooting subsided, a tricycle rider, popularly called keke was shot dead at close range, as the bullet tore through his forehead, while another, a male was shot in the neck as he was rushed to an unknown hospital by students.
The real reason behind the shooting was not yet known, as many students attributed it to be cult related, others to robbery which now seem ‘normal’ in Oko without any measure to curtail it and others also said it was hired assassination.
The sporadic shooting has been witnessed for two days now, as that of yesterday took place at the popular total filling station, which sent market women, Okada riders and others running for safety.
The school anti cult outfit and the police station in Oko seem helpless to the shootings and killings.
