An eyewitness told New Vision, that the deceased saw the gun men and immediately started making alarm.

"His wife asked him what was taking place, but he was trying to speed the vehicle and escape. On hearing the first two bullets, the wife luckily opened the car door and managed to escape. The killer tried to follow her, but later gave up and went for the husband," the source said.
