Nigerian woman 'shot dead by her Italian husband after she filed for divorce'

Rita Amenze, a 31-year-old Nigerian woman, has reportedly been shot dead by her husband in Italy.

Amenze was said to have been killed in front of her colleagues in the parking lot of Mf Mushroom, a company where she worked on Friday morning, September 10, in Noventa Vicentina.
It was gathered that the suspect, Pierangelo Pellizzar, 61, laid an ambush for his wife at about 7:30am and shot her four times, killing her instantly.

After killing Amenze, he reportedly escaped from the crime scene aboard a grey Cherokee Jeep which was later found abandoned at his brother's house.

However, the carabinieri are currently on hunt for the suspect, who is said to be armed and dangerous.
Italian media are reporting that Amenze was killed because she filed for a divorce after she returned from Nigeria a week ago.

It was further gathered that late Amenze arrived in Italy in 2017 through Libya and got married to the Italian man in 2018.
