A son of Dr. Chike Akunyili who was murdered by yet unidentified men, Obumneme, has described how his father was killed.
TOS NEWS reported that the medical doctor and widower of a late Minister of Information, Dora Akunyili, was killed on Tuesday night when he was returning from a commemorative lecture in honour of his wife, Dora.
Speaking with the BBC Igbo, Obumneme said that his dad was shot in the face by gunmen who opened fire on his vehicle at Nkpor, Anambra State.
“His driver and a Police officer assigned to him also died in the shooting. A cousin survived and is being treated in hospital,” Obumneme added.
They were driving back from the town of Nsukka in Enugu state after attending a lecture hosted by the University of Nigeria to pay tribute to the late NAFDAC DG, Dora.
The Police Command in Anambra State, where the incident happened, has vowed to unravel the brains behind the murder.
