BREAKING: Gunmen kill ARTMA official in Awka


Just a few hours after one person was gunned down at Aroma junction on Wednesday evening, another person, has again been felled on Thursday morning.

A source said the incident happened close to a motor park, where commuters ferry passengers from Awka to Nnewi. The source said the victim is an official of the Anambra Road Traffic Management Agency (ARTMA).

“I think 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.

Though there have been cult related killings in Awka since Easter, but it was not clear if Thursday mornings incident was related to cultism.

The Anambra State Police command public relations officer, SP Tochukwu Ikenga was yet to react to the killing as at the time of filling this report.
