Gunmen kill 1 in Anambra

Gunmen numbering five on Wednesday afternoon killed a young man at the popular Aroma junction in Awka, Anambra State capital.

Daily Trust gathered that the gunmen intercepted the young man whose identity had yet to be ascertained under Aroma flyover and shot him in the head and chest till he was dead.

An eye witness said she saw the gunmen pursuing the victim but thought they were his brothers who wanted to arrest him, maybe for running away from the family.

Another witness who simply identified himself as IG said the killing might not be unconnected with a cult war going on in Awka.

The police spokesman in the state, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, who confirmed the incident said it was a cult related issue.
