A Brazil returnee was reportedly shot dead by unknown assailants in Anambra State bare days after he came back to Nigeria for the Christmas holiday.
The deceased, simply identified as Ndubuisi, has been in Brazil for a long time and decided to come back home to celebrate the 2018 Christmas in his village in the south-east state.
While it is not clear the reason behind his murder, some reports claim it was over an alleged drug deal that went wrong. He was also accused of duping people from the drug deals they make.
One thing is clear though – the police have ruled out robbery as the motive for the murder as his SUV was abandoned by the unknown assailants.
Though his corpse has been deposited in an undisclosed mortuary in the state as investigation continues.
