In a series of fresh attacks, gunmen, in the early hours of Monday, killed four persons in different parts of Anambra State.
The Eastern Updates gathered that two brothers identified as Godwin Ikechukwu Modobi and Nnajiofor Modobi were killed in Umuhu village in Ukpor which is located at the Nnewi South Local Government Area of the state.
A source close to the family revealed that Godwin was a direct younger brother to Nnajiofor, and was also a former youth leader in the community.

The two other unfortunate victims were murdered along the Udorji Road, beside St. Mary’s Church, Ozubulu, in Ekwusigo LGA.
The source further revealed that the gunmen first killed Nnajiofor right in their house, after which they blindfolded and abducted the younger brother, whom they also eventually killed close to Utuh Junction and dumped his corpse at the centre of the road.
A trending video which made rounds on social media showed the scenes of the incident, showing the corpse lying lonely at the centre of the deserted expressway, without a vehicle or pedestrian coming or going through the road.
Fired bullets were also seen close to the corpse, lying in a pool of blood, with bullet wounds on his chest and other parts of the body.
Efforts to get the Public Relations Officer of the state Police Command, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, proved abortive, as he was yet to respond to his message, at the time of filing this report.
The incident is happening less than four days after a similar attack was carried out at a beer parlour in Osumenyi, where five persons were killed.
