Gunmen on Tuesday attacked a French couple who were visiting Ebonyi State.
New Telegraph reports that the husband was subsequently killed, and his wife was injured.
Confirming the news, State Governor, Dave Umahi said:
The tourists got to Abaomege in Onicha Local Government Area of the state in the night from where they were planning to proceed to Calabar in Cross River State when they went into the bush and set their tent to rest.
As they were having their rest, gunmen stormed the area and shot them. The gunmen took €1,160 and N13, 000.
Sadly the corpse has been deposited in the mortuary.
The wife was so devastated. What we did was to put her in a hotel and give her some money.
