Enugu, capital of Enugu was yesterday thrown into panic following the brutal murder of a middleaged man identified as Revd Victor Nnaduagwu. Nnaduagwu, whose church is yet to be identified was believed to have been murdered in the early hours of Thursday.

A source, who was present while sympathisers were pulling out the remains of the victim from the stream told our reporter that the deceased had bruises all over his body. Eyewitness at the stream said he had bruises in some parts of his body, while his face looked like someone that was hit in the face with stone by his killers.
