Gunmen kill PDP chairman in Enugu

Gunmen  suspected to be hired assassins on Friday night  murdered the chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr Steve Ani, in Enugu South Local Government Area of Enugu State.

It was gathered that Mr  Ani was killed while he was about driving into his country home at Amechi Awkunanaw.

Two young men on a motorcycle, according to an eyewitness account,  accosted him and fired at him.

It was also gathered  that before the PDP chairman could make any move, the gunmen  had fired him from a very close range.

He was said to have lost  control of the vehicle and ran into a ditch following the hail of bullets fired at him.

The eyewitness said that while the PDP chieftain was screaming and shouting for help, the gunmen moved closer to the car and rained more bullets on him, leaving the victim in a pool of his own blood inside the car.

The gunmen were said to have escaped through the Amechi axis of Enugu-Port-Harcourt expressway, while policemen later recovered Ani’s lifeless body and his bullet-riddled car from the scene where the incident occurred.

When contacted on phone, the Commissioner of Police, Enugu State, Job Doma, confirmed the incident. Doma, however said that there were indications that Ani’s death might be connected with cultism.
