“It was when she came out afterwards, still afraid, that she now realised that the gunmen shot at the husband in their compound. By that time he has lost a lot of blood.

“She raised alarm and people gathered and rushed the husband to the hospital.

“About two hospitals rejected to admit him because of his state at that time. It was another popular hospital that admitted him, but could barely do little as he has lost a lot of blood.

“It is a shock on us and the entire Abiriba community living in Aba. Just a few weeks, we have buried and lost so many of our dear ones.’’
