Gunmen kill French tourist, shoot wife in Ebonyi

Gunmen Tuesday night attacked a French couple, who were visiting Ebonyi State, killing the husband and injuring the wife.

The State Governor, Dave Umahi disclosed this in a meeting with staff and students of Ebonyi State University (EBSU), Abakaliki.

He explained that the tourists got to Abaomege in Onicha Local Government Area of the state in the night from where they were planning to proceed to Calabar in Cross River State when they went into the bush and set their tent to rest.

“As they were having their rest, gunmen stormed the area and shot them. The gunmen took €1,160 and N13, 000.

“Sadly the corpse has been deposited in the mortuary.

“The wife was so devastated. What we did was to put her in a hotel and give her some money.”

He described the incident as unfortunate and warned that anywhere there is cultism and other violent crimes, the council chairman and development centre coordinator will be sacked.
