Pregnant woman and son killed in Aba.


Report says a pregnant woman and her son have been murdered by an unknown gunmen in Aba,Abia state.

This is as security operatives have intensified efforts to apprehend bandits involved in heinous crimes in parts of Abia State. This may have forced the hoodlums to go underground as they now operate in the villages.

Witnesses said the robbers, who arrived on a motorcycle in Ahia Nkwo market, in Ikeala Ahiaba, along Mgboko/Obikabia road in Obingwa council area, could not find the POS operator who was their target and  resorted to harassment and stealing from petty traders, taking away their personal belongings including cash and cellphones.

A source who identified the dead woman  as Nwanyi Chosen (meaning Chosen woman), a dealer on cement and other local materials, said on noticing the bodies of their victims, the hoodlums quickly hijacked a parked motorcycle and escaped.

The Abia State police command said it was  yet to be briefed on the incident.
