A lecturer at the Faculty of Education, Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, was killed on Tuesday by yet-to-be-identified gunnmen.
It was gathered that the don, Prof Anthony Eze, was conveying his children to school when he was attacked. He was killed around his residence, a source said.
A news report quotes an eye witness saying that, “We were here this morning when Dr Eze was driving out of his house and suddenly a Toyota Corolla salon car pulled towards the entrance of his house and when he tried to drive back, they followed him and shot him in the chest. We ran away.
“We rushed him to the General Hospital, Amaku, and the doctor at the hospital confirmed that he was dead.”
The police public relations officer of the Anambra State Police Command, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, is yet to confirm the incident.
