An Abuja-based businessman, Chinedu Nzegwu, has been beaten to death by unknown evil men in Enugu State.

This was made known by his friends, colleagues and former schoolmates who took to their Facebook accounts to mourn his untimely death.

Chinedu, who lives in Abuja until his death, is a former student of Dennis Memorial Grammar School DMGS, Onitsha, Anambra State and a graduate of the University of Port-Harcourt.

He was reportedly attacked by yet-to-be-identified people who left him for death after hitting him with a big stick on the head.
