The deceased was said to have been evacuated by a police team that arrived minutes after the incident.

A Source in the area who spoke anonymously to newsmen said: “From what we later learnt, the young man was said to have ran away from Aba with some people’s money after a transaction that they did with him and returned back some weeks back.

“We learnt that the young man has been trailed by the gang for three days. They trailed him on Monday and Tuesday, but he was able to escape. “On Wednesday, it was gathered that he received a call from someone who he told where he was. It was learnt that shortly after receiving the call, the gang stormed at the joint where they shot him three times and used a machete that they came with to equally cut his head and ensured that he died before they left.”
