The suspects also shot and killed a student of Marist Comprehensive Academy, Uturu.
They also robbed motorists and passengers who were en route to Port Harcourt from Enugu and from Okigwe town to Enugu, respectively.
Marist in a statement on Sunday morning confirmed the death of one of it's students.
The police spokesperson in Imo state, Michael Abattam, has told correspondents that the police has swung into action.
Abattam said it was a robbery attack and not a kidnap operation.
As a result of the incident, residents in the area are now engulfed in fear.
It has also been reported that on June 10, 2020, suspected Fulani herdsmen kidnapped scores of travellers from the same spot. This has also contributed to the overall fear that has engulfed residents in the area.
What are the people of Uturu expecting?
