A family member has given information about the killing of Dr. Chike Akunyili.
According to his son, Obumneme, a cousin survived the tragic attack.
Recall that Dr. Akunyili was killed by unknown gunmen in Anambra.
The medical doctor and widower of a late Minister of Information, Dora Akunyili, was killed on Monday evening when he was returning from a commemorative lecture in honour of his late wife, Dora.
The Police Command in Anambra State, where the incident happened, has vowed to unravel the brains behind the murder.
Speaking with the BBC Igbo, Obumneme said that his dad was shot in the face by gunmen who opened fire on his vehicle at Nkpor, Anambra State.
