ENUGU – Gunmen Wednesday shot dead a US returnee, one Ogbo Edoga, in his home town at Aku, Igbo-Etiti Local Government Area of Enugu State.

Report said the economist was trailed to the house of one of his kinsmen, from where the two assailants, accosted him and shot him at point blank. He reportedly died before reaching the hospital.

Family sources said the deceased returned to Nigeria to attend a meeting of Nsukka professionals based in United States,geared towards raising funds for the construction of an ultra-modern medical diagnosis centre to be built at Ede Oballa community in the area.

Eye witnesses said the killers had asked the deceased ‘where is the money? But the soft spoken Financial economist reportedly knelt down, begging his assailants to spare his life, only for one of them, said to have been armed with an AK 47 rifle, to release several shots around his waist after forcefully snatching his waist band.


The assassins were said to have escaped in a car belonging to a retired senior officer of State Security Service SSS who was passing by.

The incident, threw Aku community into pandemonium , disrupting programmes lined-up for the day, which included a reception for an indigenous priest and the dedication of a structure built by the deceased’s twin sister’s husband.

Following this development, security has heightened in the area ,as a combined team of Military men and policemen have mounted surveillance and patrol all over the area in search of the killers.

Meanwhile, the Assistant Commissioner of Police in-charge of Nsukka zone, Ros Hamson Aladu, who confirmed the incident, described it as assassination . He therefore, urged all returnees in the area to quickly apply for police protection.

There is love between me and non-criminal Nigerians. I gave someone I know and called friend funds to help ship me 2 trucks and the fucker collected all my funds and changed phone lines and this is 2 bloody years and am waiting. Only God forgives, I dont.

He was asked, where is the money ? and he pleaded not to be killed. Meaning he duped someone....and the cost of the money is his phucking life.
