A suspected local vigilante, identified as Hosana Aju, has shot a young man, Mr Chukwudi Collins Chukwu dead in Ebonyi State, few days to his wedding.

9news Nigeria gathered that Mr. Chukwu was shot at the right side of his shoulder from a close range when he attended a Wake at Obiozara, Okposi in Ohaozara LGA, Ebonyi State on Friday the 16th April 2021 alongside his friend, Mr Innocent Ezeogo who originally hails from Okposi.

Speaking to 9News Nigeria correspondent, a brother to the deceased, Mr Henry Emeka Chukwu said the suspect, Mr. Hosana Aju, did not make any attempt to help in resuscitating the deceased but instead seized the opportunity to abscond.

According to him, “the suspect was aided to go into hiding by a local Chief and probably some of his Local Vigilante members in their community including hiding the gun used by the suspect.”

He further said that his brother who was killed recently got married on 06 March 2021 in a Traditional Marriage ceremony and was due to be wedded on 01 May 2021, just in over a week’s time.

He demanded for thorough investigation by the Police Force in order to bring everyone who contributed or even aided the hiding of the suspect and his gun to book and penalised in accordance with the Law.

He said “My late brother, Mr Chukwudi Collins Chukwu attended a Wake at Obiozara, Okposi in Ohaozara LGA, Ebonyi State on Friday the 16th April 2021 alongside his friend, Mr Innocent Ezeogo who originally hails from Okposi.”

“The deceased left Enugu with his friend (mentioned above) just after 8pm after informing his wife about the trip to Ebonyi State.”

“On getting to Obiozara, Okposi, the deceased called his wife to confirm that he and his friend had arrived safely at the Wake venue in Obiozara.”

“The deceased and his friend were immediately offered the seats reserved for them by the host, Mr Nnamdi Donatus Eze who lost the Father in-law.”

“Within a minute, the prime suspect, Mr Hosana Aju arrived at the scene with a locally made gun and offered to shoot his gun in the air for the deceased and his friend of which they declined the offer.”

“The suspect then made a few attempts to shoot his gun in the air but the gun could not fire and at that point, the deceased and his friend decided to move away from the suspect for their own safety.”

“Whilst moving away from the suspect, my brother was shot at the right shoulder by Mr Hosana Aju from a close range and the deceased fell to the ground.”

“The suspect did not make any attempt to help in resuscitating the deceased but instead seized the opportunity to abscond. The suspect was aided to go into hiding by a local Chief and probably some of his Local Vigilante members in their community including hiding the gun used by the suspect.”

“The deceased was shortly declared dead by a Medical Doctor in a local hospital.”

“I am handling this process on behalf of my entire family seeking for the utmost justice for our beloved brother, Mr Chukwudi Collins Chukwu before we can lay him to rest.”
