Dr Chike Akunyili, husband to late public health expert and NAFDAC chief, Dora Akunyili has been shot dead by suspected killer herdsmen.
A family source who spoke to newsmen under the condition of anonymity said Akunyili was travelling along the Old Onitsha Enugu Highway when he killed alongside his driver and police orderly.
The remains of the three had since been deposited at the hospital ahead of burial and police investigation.
Until his death, Akunyili was running St Leo’s Hospital, one of the biggest in Enugu.
The prominent medical doctor graduated first class and spent his professional career treating citizens across the country, including many on charitable grounds.
