Friends and residents of Ndiegoro area of Aba, Abia State, have taken to social.media to mourn one Samuel Kalu, a Nigerian Man who was based in Malaysia.

Kalu was said to have been brutally murdered by unknown gunmen.

It was learnt that the deceased who is popularly known as ‘aka aki ilu- bitter kola’ was shot dead  while having a hair cut at a barbing saloon at Umuibe Street, off Item Road, Ndiegoro Aba, on Sunday evening, September 27.

A friend to the deceased, Maduka Lawrence, in the early hours of today took to Facebook to mourn his friend.

My heart bleeds…as I saw you today lying lifeless in the pool of your own blood. I and other Umuebiri wept uncontrollably but we realised that couldnt bring you back. Rest in peace Aki Ilu….good brother.” he wrote.

Since the killing, the area has been reportedly thrown into panic.

Kalu who hailed from Ibinaukwu Igbere, in Bende Local Government Area of Abia was born and grew up at the Ndiegoro area of Aba before he travelled to Malaysia for greener pasture.

Upon his arrival from Malaysia, before the Coronavirus outbreak, he stayed with his wife, daughter and aged parents

According to him, Kalu stayed with his wife, a daughter and aged parents when he recently returned from his base in Malaysia before the Coronavirus outbreak.

Kalu who reportedly returned from his Kuala Lumpur base, stayed with his aged parents before the COVID-19 lockdown and had planned his return before his murder.

Spokesperson of the command, SP Geoffrey Ogbonna, who confirmed the incident, said the case is under investigation.

We learnt that the young man was shot in a barbing saloon. He got a call and either he directed them to where he went or the people went in there and shot him. The case is under investigation. We are doing our best to track the hoodlums,” he said.
