A video serving rounds online showed late Dr. Chike J. Akunyili, husband to former NAFDAC DG, late Prof. Dora Akunyili gasping for breath shortly after he was attacked.
It was earlier reported that he was shot at Nkpor Junction, Idemili North, Anambra State on Tuesday, September 29, by unknown gunmen. It is reported that he had arrived the state to receive an award on behalf of his late wife when the tragic incident happened.
Though details of the incident are still sketchy, a source close to the family said the deceased was still at the University of Nigeria Nsukka Alumni Association (UNAA) where the late Dora was honoured some hours before he was killed.
In the viral video Akunyili is seen lying on the floor with his bloodied eyes and opened skull. He was gasping for breathe as onlookers made videos of him battling between life and death.
No one came close or bothered to offer help to him after the attack.
