Gun-wielding men, Saturday, August 13, invaded Government Science Secondary School in the Nasarawa Eggon Local Government Area of Nasarawa State killing a teacher and injuring one other person.

Confirming the incident, the spokesperson of the state police command, DSP Ramhan Nansel, said;
“A distress call was received from GSS Nasarawa Eggon that some unidentified hoodlums invaded the residence of one Auta Nasela.
When they gained entrance, they started demanding money, but the man escaped to his neighbour’s house.
Unfortunately, one of the hoodlums followed him and shot him. He was rushed to the General Hospital at Nasarawa Eggon by the police but he later died while receiving treatment.
