It was gathered that the suspect laid an ambush for Rita on Friday morning and shot her four times, killing her instantly in front of her colleagues in the parking lot of Mf Mushroom, a company where she worked.
After killing his wife, the Italian man reportedly fled the scene in a grey Jeep Cherokee, which was subsequently found abandoned at his brother’s residence.
The carabinieri are currently searching for the fleeing suspect, who was reportedly said to be armed and dangerous.
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.
