Unknown Gunmen have shot dead a popular hip-hop musician, Slami Ifeanyi.

Reports gathered that Ifeanyi, a former Mr Universe, was killed on Monday at Umubere area of Awka, Anambra State capital.

He was reportedly driving in his newly-acquired exotic vehicle when he was attacked and killed.

“He was driving his new car which he bought just two weeks ago when it happened. Although we don’t know why he was attacked it looks like a targeted attack,” a source said.

Apart from singing, Slami was a model and actor.

Efforts to get comments from the state police command’s spokesperson, DSP Toochukwu Ikenga, were unsuccessful.

In the past couple of months, the security situation in the South-east has deteriorated, as unknown gunmen allegedly linked to the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and its militant arm, the Eastern Security Network (ESN), have been conducting attacks in the region.
