A renowned billionaire businessman from Nnewi, Chief Gab Ofoma (Ojemba Enwe Ilo Nnewi) Chairman/ CEO of Ofoma Associates Ltd., was gunned down in cold blood on Sunday by gunmen.

According to our correspondent, Mr. Agunze Azuka Onwuka, Chief Ofoma was killed after visiting his country home in Nnewi and was on his way back to his base in Port Harcourt.

Reporting on the incident to News Band, he said that the businessman was killed for no reason.

He said: “He was murdered on the Ukpor- Lilu- Orsumoghu- Azia- Mbosi Road in Anambra State, as his driver made a detour from the Onitsha-Owerri Highway en route to Port Harcourt, due to the traffic jam on the highway.

“His crime probably was that he was riding in an SUV and looked like a big man.”

Onwuka recalled that many people have been murdered along same Ukpor- Lilu- Orsumoghu- Azia- Mbosi Road by these people who kill anybody that is in a big car and looks like a big man.

“It has become a crime to ride a big car in the Southeast, except you have a battalion of security operatives guarding you,” he noted.

“During the Christmas/New Year mass return, the killers seemed to have gone on holiday and resumed afterwards,” he added.

Chief Ofoma was a senior estate surveyor and valuer and had a big estate surveying firm with headquarters in Port Harcourt and other offices in Nnewi, Abuja and Lagos, employing over 150 people.

He was a soft-spoken gentleman whose chieftaincy title Ojemba Enwe Ilo means “a traveller or sojourner does not create enemies.”

He was an illustrious son of Umunnealam, Umudim, Nnewi.

In conclusion, Onwuka asked: “When will these senseless and directionless killings stop? What will these killings achieve?”
