Marist in a statement on Sunday morning confirmed the killing of one of its students.

The statement read, “Some students from Marist Comprehensive Academy, Uturu, Abia State were attacked by armed bandits around Ihube Road in Okigwe LGA on their way from a Final Religious Profession of some Marist Brothers.

“In the course of the robbery attack, one student in the person of Edeh Donald was shot and he later died.

“Three other students were injured. They are receiving treatment and they are responding to the treatment. We pray to God to guide and protect Nigerian citizens.”

When contacted, the police spokesperson in Imo state, Micheal Abattam, said the police had swung into action.
