“He was said to have received a call from one of the operatives who had been waiting for him. And as soon as he stepped out of the gate, he was asked if indeed he was Kalu Ikeagwu, and he confirmed his identity.
“He was politely invited, but was about arguing with them when they brought out their guns. neighbours who had tried to step in, stood back as soon as they saw the guns.
“He was then carried away in a bus.”
