Few weeks to Christmas, a popular medical doctor in Edo state has been killed by his kidnappers.
The physician attached to Irrua hospital in Esan, LGA of Edo State was kidnapped by some gunmen on Monday when his vehicle developed fault in Ekpoma.
Dr Sunday’s kidnappers fired shots into the air to scare away motorists and in the process, he was hit with bullets. He reportedly died on the spot.
