In Ebonyi State, a young man named Isaac Chukwu AKA Ochudo was purportedly assassinated by unknown gunmen just days before his wedding.
Ochudo was preparing to close his shop when the gunmen struck and killed him on the spot, according to family and friends who rushed to social media to grieve his death.
It was discovered that the deceased had had finalized wedding plans before the incident occurred.
According to a sibling of the deceased, Ochudo, who hails from Ebonyi State’s Ikwo Local Government Area, was assassinated.
“He had two stores, one on the street where he sold provisions and the other in Abakaliki’s international market.” He was killed in one of his stores after he had closed for the evening.
“He and his wife had locked up their shop only for him to get into his car, and some unidentified men on a motorcycle rushed up to him and shot him twice,” the brother explained.
Another lady, Grace Egbo, who identified herself as Ochudo’s classmate wrote this on her Facebook page;
“Chai!! What a wicked world??
“You were very healthy and happy when you came to proofread your forthcoming wedding program and jotter in my office yesterday that I asked you what the happiness was all about, you didn’t say anything but kept on smiling but I didn’t know it will be your last happy moment with me.
“When leaving my office yesterday after the proofreading, you promised to come back today and give us part of the money so that we will start producing the job as your wedding is in nine days time but late in the night, I received a call from one of your friends that someone shot you in your shop and you’re no more, I didn’t believe it until your wife called me at the early hour of today to inform me of your death.
“You were an easy going person and jovial, even in our primary and secondary school days, I had never seen you quarrel with anybody.
Chai! Your death hurt me to the marrow. God knows the best.
Rest in peace my classmate.”
