Unknown gunmen have assassinated a former Igwe of Mkpunado Aguleri, Ejes Gist News can authoritatively reports.
According to eyewitness accounts, he and his driver were shot and killed in the early hours of Friday around Otuocha in the Anambra East Local Government Area of the state.
Edozieuno was also one of the traditional rulers deposed by the state governor, Willie Obiano, last year, according to this newspaper.
