Drunk and intoxicated Vigilante shoot, and kill only son during wedding day celebration

It was a sad mood at the weekend in Oraifite Street, Enekwasimpu Obosi lay­out, Idemili North Local Government Area, Anam­bra State, when a local vig­ilante operative reportedly shot dead a 24-year-old boy, said to be the only son of the family.

The deceased was said to have met his untimely death on the fateful day (precisely last Friday) when he was serving drinks to some vigilante operatives in his moth­er’s restaurant (Jekwu restaurant) as ordered by a groom in celebration of the marriage of a new wife.

An eye-witness who pleaded anonymity ex­plained, “It was while the vigilante operatives were drinking that at a point, may be out of intoxica­tion, one of them stood up and shot into the air and stray bullet killed the boy that was serving them the drinks.

“The mother of the boy was not around when the incident occurred but the bereaved family that hails from Nri, Njikoka Local Government Area of the state was being called on phone by neighbours when the incident happened,” he added.

Crying and wailing have continued to envelope the atmosphere there since the incident happened even as sympathisers cursed the vigilante operative that did the shooting.

“Imagine wasting the life of the innocent boy, the only son of the fami­ly, because he was given a gun. Does he know the rudiment of the gun he was giving, idiot like him,” said a sympathiser.

“He should be made to face the wrath of the law, he was given free drink and he became mad and touched the trigger to waste the life of a growing young man,” said another.
