By Our Correspondent

THERE was pandemonium at the popular Aroma area of Awka, the Anambra State capital, on Wednesday, when gunmen suspected to be cultists gunned down a middle-aged man.

The victim, who was said to hail from Amudo Village of Awka, was said to be a tricycle revenue collector who was previously a Keke operator himself.

The assailants trailed him from Ifite area of the state capital and shot him at close range at a filling station which serves as a popular stop for buses and tricycles.

Business outfits in the area were forced to close shop and roadside traders abandoned their articles and fled.

The major roads in the vicinity of the incident suddenly became empty, just as many people abandoned their cars and took to their heels.

The lifeless body of the victim was still lying at the filling station at the time of filing this report.

Awka has been witnessing cult- related killings for a long and they kill their rivals in broad daylight.
