A cousin of the deceased, Chinekwu Onah, said “I was playing draft few meters away from the scene when I heard the gunshot.

I immediately rushed to the shop only to see my cousin already covered with blood. That was when I alerted the head of the neighbourhood watch in my area, Belushi Agbo.

“He immediately arrived at the scene and we began searching for the hoodlums. Following intelligence from the residents, who saw when the hoodlums fled, we were able to apprehend one of the suspects. He had a fresh hair cut with bloodstains on his shirt.

“Just to be sure, I touched his head and some particles of hair stuck to my hand as a result of the fresh hair cut. We have handed him over to the police.
