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.
