How Gunmen Killed Motorist, Escaped With Victim's Cash In Abia

Unknown gunmen have killed a man and took his cash in Umuahia, the capital of Abia State, on Friday.

Many motorists and pedestrians in the area were said to have fled the scene after gunshots rented the air.

“I was there; the man who was shot dead was driving a Toyota car before he ran into traffic which made the gunmen to catch up with him.

“He was carrying some cash in his car but I don’t know how much. He was shot and killed on the spot and the gunmen took the cash away. The body of the man is still lying there,” a source told SaharaReporters.

As at the time of this report, only one casualty was confirmed but some others might have been injured in the melee.
