Dr. Chike Akunyili, husband of the late former Information Minister, Prof. Dora Akunyili, has reportedly been murdered.
He was killed on Tuesday evening at Umuoji in Idemili North LGA of Anambra State.
Even though details of the incident are still sketchy, a source close to the family said the deceased was still at the University of Nigeria Nsukka Alumni Association (UNAA) where the late Dora was honoured some hours before his death.
Source, shattered by the murder, pleaded with God to render the devil and his agents powerless and useless.
“I was with this man yesterday at Sharon Hall, All Saints Cathedral, Onitsha. At the event, the University of Nigeria Nsukka Alumni Association (UNAA), Onitsha branch honored late Dora Akunyili.
He spoke highly of Dora and made a donation to the association of 500k.
He was there with his son, Obum, who works for the Anambra state government.
“We watched them head off to the car and it was emotional as Obum hugged him tightly as both of them separated to join their respective cars.
“The obum was in a white Hilux while the man was in a big Jeep (I think it was a Prado). God help us!”””
