A pretty Ghanaian lady married to a Nigerian and living in Lagos with her family met her sudden death last night when unknown gunmen shot her and her husband.
Faustina Adigwe, a mother of two minors, died after two men said to be riding on a motorcycle fired at her from close range in the Randle area of Surulere, not too far from Ojuelegba. The husband survived and is presently in hospital.
“She was leisurely cruising around the Ranlde area with her husband when two men on an okada drew close and fired repeatedly at the driver’s side,” said a source who spoke with Transport & Business Express. “She was the one driving the car, which has tinted glass, and it is doubtful if the killers clearly saw the person they were firing at,” the source added.
Friends of the family who spoke with Transport & Business Express described the incident as very unfortunate.
“She was a very gentle and jovial lady who could not hurt a fly. She couldn’t have been involved in any shady business, so I can’t understand why someone could do this,” one of them said.
Transport & Business Express learnt that Tina (shown in photo) was an enterprising trader who shuttled between her native Ghana and Nigeria while her husband is into events management. It could not be immediately confirmed if the case has been reported to the police.
