At least two persons have been killed after
violence erupted in Eku community, Ethiope East Local Government Area of Delta State.
A yet-to-be identified member of the National
Youth Service Corps, NYSC, was reportedly
abducted by the gunmen.
The incident occurred after some heavily armed gunmen numbering over 20 laid siege at the community.
The deceased, both whom are males in their early 30s, sustained life threatening gunshot wounds and died the next day (Thursday) at the Delta State Teaching Hospital, Oghara.
The victims were referred from the Eku Baptist
Government Hospital, where they had earlier been rushed to for medical attention.

On his part, the Delta State Police Public Relation Officer, PPRO, DSP Celestina Kalu said she was yet to get any official report on the abduction of the corps member.
