Gunmen have reportedly killed a husband and wife, leaving their bodies in the boot of their vehicle in Anambra State.
Their bodies were discovered by passersby at a lonely location along the Tempo Junction, Umunya axis of the Enugu-Onitsha Expressway in the wee hours of Wednesday.
In a viral video, a dark-coloured Toyota Corolla with its doors wide open, was seen being surrounded by concerned citizens.
