“As soon as they sighted, and identified him, they fired several shots at him and left only when they confirmed he had taken his last breath.

“The Ward Chairman’s murder has shaken both the PDP family and his community to their very foundation. Coming on the heels of the technical knockout the Party suffered in the November 11, 2023 Governorship election in the State, his murder couldn’t have been more depressing.

“However, an unnamed Party woman had recently threatened to harm him. Since after the last governorship election in Imo”.
