The Labour Party State House of Assembly Candidate for Onuimo LGA in Imo state, Hon. Christopher Eleghu, was shot and killed yesterday by unknown gunmen.
Hon. Eleghu aka WASCO was assassinated in his home late Thursday night.
His assailants also burnt down his house and cars. This sad development is coming amidst a recent resurgence of attacks by suspected members of the Eastern Security Network(ESN) and IPOB.
Our Correspondent gathered that the gunmen, who were on rampage, also visited the houses of other politicians in the area but met their absences.
The corpse of the deceased also had several matchete cuts and has since been deposited in a Mortuary. As at the time of filing this report, the state Police Public Relations Officer CSP Michael Abattam, could not be reached for comments.
