A couple set to wed next week have been killed by unknown gunmen at Arondizuogu in the Ideato North Local Government Area of Imo state.
The couple, Mba Ifeoma Gloria and Eremezie Tochukwu Martin were supposed to marry on January 18, 2023.
Residents of the community say the intending couple was taking a ride in the groom’s brother’s tricycle when they were attacked by the gunmen who killed all three of them on Wednesday, January 11.
Troubled by the incessant killings and kidnappings in their community, members of the community came out en mass on Wednesday to lay curses on the assailants perpetrating the crime.
They also claim that the assailants have invaded their community and specialize in stealing flashy cars and killing their owners.
The state police command is yet to comment on this unfortunate incident.
