A source said: “After the marriage ceremony of his friend on Thursday, around 8 pm, he drove out of his house, and was pursued by gunmen.
“They shot him in his hand while he was driving, but he managed to drive off with the wound, but later drove into a ditch.
“It was while he was struggling to come out that the gunmen caught up with him and asked him if he had finished running? They shot him at point-blank range, and he died.”
According to the source, the man was buried on Friday since his family didn’t want to keep his body around for too long.
The man was scheduled to marry his wife on Saturday at her parents’ home in Otolo, Nnewi, Nnewi North Local Government Area.
