Gunmen pretending to be freedom fighters in the early hours of Monday, 2nd May, 2022, killed four persons in different parts of Anambra State.
It was gathered that two brothers identified as Godwin Ikechukwu Modobi and Nnajiofor Modobi were killed in Umuhu village in Ukpor, Nnewi South Local Government Area of the state.
Mondays are usually observed as sit-at-home in the South-East especially in Anambra and Imo states. Residents are being forced by none state actors to stay at home or be visited with violence.
Meanwhile, a source close to the Modobi family revealed that Godwin was a direct younger brother to Nnajiofor, and was also a former youth leader in the community.
The two others were murdered along the Udorji Road, beside St. Mary’s Church, Ozubulu, in Ekwusigo LGA.
The source further revealed that the gunmen first killed Nnajiofor right in their house, after which they blindfolded and abducted the younger brother, whom they also eventually killed close to Utuh Junction and dumped his corpse at the centre of the road.
A trending video from the scenes of the incident, showed the corpse lying lonely at the centre of the deserted expressway, without a vehicle or pedestrian coming or going through the road.
Fired bullets were also seen close to the corpse, lying in a pool of blood, with bullet wounds on his chest and other parts of the body.
The incident is happening less than four days after a similar attack was carried out at a beer parlour in Osumenyi, where five persons were killed.
