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.

This was contained in a statement signed by the police public relations officer, Daniel Ndukwe.

The police boss said: “The victim was rushed to the hospital, where he was confirmed dead by doctors on duty and deposited in the mortuary for autopsy.”

Nnaji hails from Mbu, Isi-Uzo LGA of the state.

He was dismissed as a judge following his alleged role in the removal of Chris Ngige, the then governor of Anambra state, in 2007 via a questionable ex-parte order.

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

The Macias children, who are being cared for by Daniel’s parents, have not quite grasped what has happened to their mother and father, Serey said. After Daniel died on Sept. 9, a counselor explained to the two eldest children, 7 and 5, that both of their parents were gone, Serey said. While the oldest child — Daniel and Davy’s only son — understood the situation, his younger sister is “still looking for mommy,” Serey said. All of the children, Serey has heard from the grandparents, “spend a lot of time at night looking for mom and dad.”
