A source close to the family, who asked not to be named, said that the gunmen accused Oguejiofor of writing petitions against them and their activities in the community.

“They said he had been writing petitions against them to the Anambra State Government,” the source said.

As at the time of filing this report, there was no official reaction from the Anambra State Police command, but a police officer who spoke on condition of anonymity confirmed the development.

Meanwhile, reports reaching the desk of The Eastern Updates has it that the father of Oguejiofor has slumped and died, minutes after he heard that abductors had killed his son.

Oguejiofor and his brother, a medical doctor, were ambushed and abducted on their way to see their parents on Sunday.
