Gunmen rob, kill car dealer in Onitsha

Four armed men on Monday robbed and killed a middle-aged car dealer, Emeka Ekwerendu, at Modebe Avenue Junction in the commercial city of Onitsha, Anambra.

The Divisional Police Officer at the Central Police Station, Onitsha, Tomitope Fahugbe, confirmed the incident to newsmen, adding that he had yet to receive its details.

An eyewitness said the late Mr.  Ekwerendu was shot by a four-man armed robbery gang at about 8:30 a.m. a few metres away from the Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Odoakpu, Onitsha.

“The gang operating in a light green Toyota Siena without a vehicle number plate trailed their victim from a primary school close to the church, after he had dropped his children at school.

“As he was driving out in his black Land Cruiser, he was shot dead and an undisclosed amount of money taken from the boot of his vehicle.

“The gang armed with four Ak-47 riffles shot sporadically into the air to scare the people away as they made their exit,’’ he said.
