A video circulating online captured the horrific moment a man later identified as Olisa, was shot dead in Anambra state.
Eyewitnesses who filmed the incident and spoke Igbo while the incident was happening, said the man had already been shot while in the car by the armed men who wore face masks. After being dragged out of the car, the man was shot at close range again.
Watch the video below.
A Facebook user, Dan Ugwu, who identified the victim as Olisa said the man recently got married to his wife, Uju. In a post shared to mourn Olisa’s tragic passing, Dan Ugwu wrote:
“OLISA just got married to UJU in May 2021. He didn’t imagine anything ontoward atleast this year. A group of gunmen ambushed him at Igbariam Anambra state. The daredevils dragged him out of his car, shot him repeatedly at the heart and left him in the pool of his blood. The way and manner human life is wasted on daily basis in Nigeria is unimaginable. While saner societies are making it difficult for criminals to succeed, ours is becoming a fertile ground to kill and escape. I am weak of writing RIP all day. Happy Sunday Olisa. Thank you.”
