In the state capital of Awka, a member of the Anambra Road Traffic Management Agency, or ARTMA, was shot and killed.

This is happening just hours after another person was killed near Aroma Junction on Wednesday night by rapacious gunmen, according to Anaedoonline.ng.

According to a source, the event took place near a car park where commuters take the ferry from Awka to Nnewi.

“The man who was killed is an ARTMA official. He stopped some people who were driving a Toyota Sienna vehicle with tinted glasses, and the people shot him and drove off.

“It happened just close to me as I was boarding a vehicle this morning to go to Nnewi,” the source said.

Although there had been homicides in Awka connected to cults during the Easter holiday, it was unclear whether the tragedy on Thursday morning was a result of cultism.

As of the time this story was filed, SP Tochukwu Ikenga, the public relations officer for the Anambra State Police Command, had not yet responded to the killing.
