Amenze Rita, a 31-year-old Nigerian woman, was allegedly shot dead in Italy by her husband.
On Friday morning, September 10, in Noventa Vicentina, Amenze was slain in front of her coworkers in the parking lot of Mf Mushroom, a company where she worked.
The suspect, Pierangelo Pellizzar, 61, allegedly set up an ambush for the victim around 7:30 a.m. and shot her four times, killing her instantly.
After killing Amenze, he allegedly fled the scene in a grey Jeep Cherokee, which was subsequently discovered abandoned at his brother’s residence.
The carabinieri, on the other hand, are currently on the lookout for the culprit, who is claimed to be armed and dangerous.
Italian media are reporting that Amenze was killed because she filed for a divorce after she returned from Nigeria a week ago.
It was further gathered that late Amenze arrived in Italy in 2017 through Libya and got married to an Italian man in 2018.
