Gunmen shoot dead late Akunyili’s husband

Unknown gunmen on Tuesday evening reportedly shot dead Dr Chike Akunyili, husband to the late former information minister, Prof Dora Akunyili.

TGNews gathered that the incident occurred at Umuoji in Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra State.

Details of the incident remained still sketchy as of the time of filing this report, but close family sources disclosed that few hours before he was allegedly shot dead, Chike attended an event at the Sharon Hall of the All Saints Cathedral, Onitsha, organised by the University of Nigeria Nsukka Alumni Association to honour his late wife, Dora.

Chike was said to have spoken glowingly about his late wife, Dora, at the event, where he also donated the sum of N500,000 to the association.


It was gathered that he attended the event alongside his son, Obum, who works with the Anambra State Government.

At the end of the event, he and his son were said to have, however, left the venue in separate vehicles.

Chike was said to have driven off in a Prado jeep.
