Former Enyimba FC of Aba player, Christain Jacob, was Thursday shot dead by gunmen in Aba, Abia State.

Vanguard gathered that the incident happened along Umuola road, Ogbor Hill, at about 7:30 p.m.

Sources said the football star was accosted by the gunmen who demanded his handset. It is uncertain whether he struggled with the gunmen who shot him. He died before he could receive medical attention.

The late Jacob, popularly known as ‘Nkita ara’ (mad dog), played for Enyimba FC, Iwunyanwu National of Owerri before playing for foreign-based clubs. However, he returned to Nigeria as injury cut short his career.

Reacting to his death, some residents of Ogbor Hill, Aba, where he was a household name, described him as an easy-going person and wondered why someone would kill him.

“Christian Jacob, Nkita ara, was an easy-going person. We are shocked on how someone could pull a gun to kill him. The police and other security agencies should rise up the increasing insecurity in Aba, especially Ogbor Hill,” one of them said.

Police Public Relations Officer, Abia State Command, SP Geoffrey Ogbonna, said the incident had been reported to the Police. (Vanguard)
