A couple set to be joined together in holy matrimony yesterday were shot dead by suspected cult members on Friday night at a filling station close opposite Our Lord’s Chosen Church, Trans-Ekulu on the Enugu – Onitsha Expressway.

The manager of the filling station, a pump attendant and another person buying fuel at the time were also shot dead by the gunmen who immediately thereafter fled the scene, #Vanguard reports.

Sources said the gunmen trailed the couple, who were finalizing arrangements for their wedding yesterday, to the filling station where they were said to be buying fuel.

The gunmen were said to have, on arrival at the station, shot sporadically at the bride and groom who were in their car buying fuel and they reportedly died on the spot.

Enugu State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Ebere Amaraizu, also confirmed the incident.
