Veronica was immediately rushed to the hospital and according to sources who spoke to our corespondent confirmed that she is receiving and responding to treatment.

According to an eyewitness who pleaded anonymity, “the incident occurred midway into the ceremony in Nsukara community along Nwaniba Road, close to the University of Uyo (UNIUYO) main campus.

“The couple, Uduak and Samuel, had hired some NSCDC personnel to stand guards at the event,

“The two officers hired to maintain peace and security at the event had joined other guests to help themselves to free bottles of beer and other stimulants as the merriment continued.

“Unfortunately, the firearm was still in his hands when the sudden discharge occurred and sent the couple and other guests scampering, but he was quick to re-direct the nozzle of the gun to the ground and pumped the rest of the bullets in, but the fragments had already hit Veronica Kufre, who was close to the security officials.”

The source added that they initially thought it was the usual gunshots that security officials always fire during marriage ceremonies, burials or any other events to keep the place lively, adding that when the young girl collapsed on the ground with blood spill, it dawned on them that it was not the case.
