PHOTOS: Former Nigerian football star Christian Jacob shot dead by armed robbers

The Nigeria Police Command in Aba has begun a manhunt for the suspected killers of former Enyimba and Heartland winger, Christian Jacob, who was believed to be murdered on Wednesday night.

The former player was said to have been killed outside of his house on Umuola road, Ogbor Hill, Aba.

According to Daily Trust, the police spokesperson in the state Geoffrey Ogbonna confirmed the death of the ex-player to News Agency of Nigeria on Thursday, May 9.

A reliable source told NAN on Thursday that the former player had been out of the state for a while before returning to Aba some days ago, where he met his untimely death.

A source claims the information making rounds in social media that the deceased was killed by armed robbers was not true.

Adding that he was killed by suspected hired killers who shot him and went away without taking his phone or anything from him.

Ogbonna said that the police was still investigating the matter, adding that no arrest had been made. He also revealed that the player’s remains were kept in an undisclosed mortuary
