It has been reported that unknown gunmen have killed the husband of late Director General of Nafdac, Dora Akunyili.
Dr. Chike Akunyili was reportedly murdered at Umuoji in Idemilli North Local Government in Anambra State on Tuesday evening.
He attended the meeting of the University of Nigeria, UNN Alumni on Tuesday before tragedy struck.
According to The Nation, a source close to the deceased confirmed the report.
“God, pls render the devil and his agents powerless and useless.
I was with this man yesterday same yesterday at Sharon Hall, All Saints Cathedral, Onitsha. It was an occasion of University of Nigeria Nsukka Alumni Association (UNAA), Onitsha branch event where they honoured late Dora Akunyili.
He spoke glowingly about Dora and made a donation of 500k to the association. He was there with his son, Obum now working with Anambra state government.
We saw them off to the car and it was emotional when Obum hugged him tight as both of them separated to join their respective vehicles.
Obum was in a white Hilux while the man was in a big Jeep (i think Prado). God have mercy!”
Professor Dora Akunyili died in June 2014 after battling with Uterine cancer.
