Tragedy as unknown gunmen kill ex-Enugu high court judge
Unknown gunmen have reportedly shot dead a former judge of the Enugu state high court, Stanley Nnaji.
WITHIN NIGERIA learnt that the former judge, Nnaji was killed on Sunday evening in Enugu while driving in a black Mercedes Benz SUV.
A video posted on Twitter by a witness showed how the assailants double-crossed the judge’s car, dragged him out and shot him.
According to report, the incident happened beside the Enugu Diagnostics Centre by Ebeano Tunnel.
The commissioner of police in the state, Mohammed Ndatsu Aliyu confirmed the incident and ordered a manhunt for the gunmen.

The killing of Nnaji happened after a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Ahmed Gulak was shot dead by gunmen in Imo state.
