By Sunny A. David, Onitsha

A middle-aged man was killed by unknown gunmen over the weekend at Nando community in Anambra East Local Government Area of Anambra State.

The gunmen, believed to be kidnappers, reportedly shot the deceased, Maxwell Ezeudu while returning from a church prayer vigil at Igbariam.

Our Correspondent gathered that the deceased was heading to his residence at Aguleri in company of his mother and sister when he rammed into the gunmen who laid ambush for them.

A resident of the community who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the deceased nearly escaped from the gunmen before he was shot dead.

“On getting to Nando, a neighbouring community, they rammed into a road block mounted by the gunmen and their vehicle suddenly stopped after it veered off the road,” he said.

He also said the gunmen allowed the aged mother to find her way while they took their turns to rape her (the deceased sister) before holding her captive.

Our Correspondent further learnt that the kidnappers later demanded for a N350,000 ransom after establishing contact with the relations of the family.

When contacted, the State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Haruna Mohammed (SP) pleaded for time to reach the DPO in the area for confirmation as of the time of file this report.

“I will find out from the DPO please,” he said.
