A member of a vigilante group has killed a -29-year-old man, Mr Chukwudi Chukwu at Okposi community, in the Ohaozara Local Government Area of Ebonyi State.
Chukwu was said to be attending a wake with his friend at Nediokpa village, when the gun-wielding Hosanna Aju allegedly opened fire on him on Tuesday.
The victim was to wed on April 28, 2021, before he was killed by the local security man.
It was gathered that the victim hailed from Amoji Nenwe community, in the Aninri LGA of Enugu State.
His friend, who attended the wake with him, Mr Innocent Ezeogo, said the assailant approached them shortly after arriving at the venue and wanted to fire a shot in their midst.
He noted that they protested against the move and stood up to leave when the gunman shot his friend dead.
The victim’s wife-to-be, Mrs Juliana Nnamani, said she was still in shock over the development
