The facts behind the horrible death of a military couple, Gloria Matthew and Linus Audu, in Imo state, have been described by a family member.
The couple was reportedly in Imo state for their traditional wedding on May 2 when they were ambushed by unknown gunmen who killed and then beheaded them.
In an interview with the BBC, a family member of the slain couple stated the couple was ambushed by four armed men near Banana intersection in Orlu, Imo state.
“It happened around 3pm. They were traveling to Nkwerre from Lagos.
Audu is from southern Kaduna but he lives in Makurdi. Gloria is based in Sokoto. They arrived in Lagos from Kaduna on the 26th of April to pick up Gloria’s mum so that they can travel together for the traditional marriage rites.
They killed Linus’ relatives that day. The leader of the armed men ordered them (gunmen) to shoot. They killed them (the couple) in front of Gloria’s 10-year-old daughter and her mum” the family source said
