The gunmen on Thursday murdered Ugboma, the chairman of Ejemekwuru Customary Court in the Oguta Local Government Area of Imo.

The judge was killed by the gunmen who operated on motorcycles while he was presiding over a court session.

The incident brought the court sitting to an abrupt end as lawyers, court staff and litigants fled.

In an emotional note, his sister, Chioma, who took to her Facebook page Sunday morning, described her brother’s death as an inexplicable pain.

“My elder brother, Nnaemeka Ugboma, was shot dead on Thursday during his court sitting. The pain is inexplicable. We neither thirst nor hunger, our mouths open to wail but even the tears are becoming frozen.

“Our prayer is that God takes charge. We take solace that life is temporary and we shall all meet our maker someday to be judged by our deeds,” Chioma wrote.
