A Nigerian woman, Amenze Rita has been killed in Italy. The 31-year-old Nigerian wife of an Italian Piera-Angelo Pellizar was allegedly killed by her husband.
It was reported that Rita filed for divorce which angered her embittered husband to carry out the heinous act of killing her.
Rita was killed in front of her colleagues in the parking lot of Mf Mushroom, a company where she worked on Friday morning, in Noventa Vicentina.
It was gathered that the suspect, Pellizzar waylaid laid his estranged wife at about 7:00am and shot her four times, until life was gone out of her.
After killing Rita, he reportedly escaped from the crime scene riding a grey Cherokee Jeep which was later found abandoned at his brother’s house.
According to a report: “It was around 7:00 in the morning and Rita Amenze was about to start her shift at a factory in Noventa Vicentina. The woman, who was only 31, was approaching the entrance along with some colleagues when Pierangelo Pellizzari, her husband, came out of nowhere. The man had a gun in his hand and, without any restraints, he killed his wife with several bullets. Immediately after shooting, the man turned to leak in his car, a gray Jeep Cherokee.”
However, the carabinieri are currently searching for the suspect, who was reportedly said to be armed and dangerous. There is fear for the safety of other people, since the man is considered extremely dangerous and potentially still armed.
Italian journalists are reporting that Rita was murdered because she filed for a divorce after she returned from Nigeria a week ago.
It was further gathered that late Rita arrived in Italy in 2017 through Libya and got married to the Italian man in 2018.
