On Sunday, unidentified gunmen shot at a couple in Ughelli, Delta state killing the lady in the process and leaving her man with gunshot wounds.
The incident which occurred between the hours of 11 am and 12 noon, happened very close the popular St Theresa roundabout in Ekuigbo.
The motive of the shooting is still unknown as it is not certain whether they were trying to kidnap or rob the couple.
According to witnesses at the scene, the couple had just finished making some transactions at a Point of Sale (POS) spot when they were attacked.
A source disclosed, “As soon as the couple saw the gunmen who were inside a green Camry car, they tried to reverse and speed off from the hoodlums only for the gunmen to open fire on them.
“The shots by the gunmen led to the death of the lady who was seated on the passenger’s side of the vehicle. She died immediately at the scene of the incident while the man who was driving the car also sustained gunshot wounds during the incident.
“Sensing the apprehension that arose from the gunshots, the hoodlums immediately fled the scene of the incident and headed towards the East-West road.”
