The police in Anambra State have launched a manhunt for killers of three persons in a town hall meeting in the state.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Haruna Mohammed, disclosed this to our correspondent in Awka on Thursday.
Mohammed said, “On Wednesday, around 1.31pm, there was a report of alleged shooting of one Izuchukwu Idemili, 32; Chidi Oforma, 31; and Bongo Muoghalu, 45.
“The incident allegedly took place when two unknown boys drove a black unregistered Mercedes ‘V Boot’ and opened fire on the crowd shortly after the inauguration of Nkpor Community Tax Force at the Civic Centre, Eke Nkpor, in the Idemili North LGA of Anambra State.
