“Immediately he fell, all the five boys started shooting at him simultaneously, riddling his body with bullets, before they walked away.”
Another source, a food vendor at the junction said the victim, Agozie, who he described as a very crazy youth innthe area was in his shop about an hour ago, where he ate food before leaving, and was felled less than an hour after.
The killing of the youth had caused a stir at the junction as traders, motorists scampered in all directions, while the assailants, five in number tucked their pistol into their pockets and walked away without any mobility, and with their faces not hooded.
As at the time of filling this report, the corpse had been removed from the junction by police operatives.
