It was gathered that the husband of the late minister was killed at Umuoji in Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra State.
It was further learnt that the victim was returning from Nsukka in Enugu State after attending a lecture hosted by the University of Nigeria to pay tribute to the late NAFDAC DG, Dora Akunyili.
However, the son of the deceased, while speaking with the BBC Igbo, disclosed that his dad was shot in the face by gunmen who opened fire on his vehicle at Nkpor, Anambra State.
“His driver and a police officer assigned to him also died in the shooting. A cousin survived and is being treated in hospital,” he said.
