A nursing mother alongside her 8-month-old baby have been reportedly killed by unknown gunmen along Wetheral road Owerri, Imo state.

Also killed, was the mother to the nursing lady who had accompanied her to a hospital.

According to an eyewitness, the diseased were waiting for a cab at Fire Service along Wetheral road Owerri when the bandits shot them dead.

“This is the most surprising death I have ever witnessed. I was also waiting for a taxi with the nursing mother where I was admiring her baby.

“She was with her mother who helped her to carry her baby who should be about eight months. But when I left there to buy something, I heard gunshots across. Unfortunately, it was the same people I was standing with that are lying lifeless, killed by unknown gunmen. This is unbelievable.”
