    Unknown gunman kills Nigerian cab driver in US


     Cyril Efobi, a 56-year-old Nigerian and taxi driver in North Carolina, United States of America has been shot death by an unknown gunman.
    Efobi, a graduate of Shaw University was killed November 8, 2016 when he packed his laptop and stepped out of his office to watch the presidential election. 
    A colleague, who heard a gunshot few minutes after Efobi stepped out of his office rushed out only to see the body of the Nigerian lying by the door.
    John Eluwa, a Raleigh defense lawyer “We really want people to help us work with the law enforcement agents and get the person that did this crime”.
    His words: “I knew Efobi for more than 30 years since we were both students at Raleigh’s Shaw University.
    “He’s very sociable with people. He’s very upfront. He’s very likable. He also may not have children but a lot of young people love him,” Eluwa said about his friend. “Anybody that comes in contact with him, you know, wants to be around him.
    “Nobody believes that he is gone. Except for when maybe his body has been interred maybe we begin to think so. But right now, anybody you’re talking to think or feel that he’s still around.”
    Vicnuel  gathered that although the police is yet to make any arrest, the surveillance camera reportedly caught the alleged gunman during and after the attack.

    However, members of the Nigerian community say he had no wife or children and that he lived alone, while plans are on to send his body back to Nigeria for burial, a candle light procession had recently been held for him in the states.
