The Commissioner of Police in Enugu State, Kanayo Uzuegbu, has ordered a discreet investigation into the yet-to-be-identified armed hoodlums who allegedly attacked a vehicle conveying students.
Mr Uzuegbu also directed a manhunt of the said hoodlums who shot sporadically at a moving Golf car conveying students along the notorious Eke-Egede Road in Udi Local Government Area of the state.
It would be recalled that the incident happened at about 4 p.m. as the students were returning home after school hours.
The incident led to the wounding and consequent death of a 12-year-old female student, while three others, who sustained injuries, are responding to treatment in an undisclosed hospital.
The commissioner also assured the residents of the state that further development on the matter would be made public.
