There was serious tension in Imo State capital, Owerri yesterday, 30th March, 2017 as unidentified gun men killed a middle aged businessman in Owerri while waiting for traffic light, away from Bank transactions.

Our reporter who arrived the scene observed that tension and fear gripped most people in the area as business activities around Wetheral /Okigwe road roundabout near Government House, Owerri were paralyzed for some moments due to the gunshots that made people take to their heels.

According to eyewitness account, who pleaded anonymity, the victim who was suspected to have made bank transactions was driving along Wetheral road to the traffic on Okigwe roundabout, when unknown to him, he was being trailed to that spot until he was stopped and shot at close range leaving him unconscious as the hoodlums eloped with his money after several firing into the air to scare away interferences.

Another eyewitness who said she flew the scene during the gun shots, recalled that the victim was double-crossed by the  criminals who forcefully demanded for his money, but after he refused to comply with their demand, the criminals eventually shot him to death,and made away with his money.
