A medical Doctor, Flor­ence Onua, has been shot dead by gun­men around GRA axis of Port Harcourt, the Rivers capital. Dr Onua was on her way home when the gunmen struck.

Until her death, Dr Onua was a Consultant Family Physician at the Braithwaite Memorial Specialist Hospi­tal (BMSH), Port Harcourt. Public Relations of the Rivers State chapter of the Nigerian Medical Association, Justice Ohaka who confirmed the incident said the victim sus­tained several bullet wounds.
