Suspected gunmen have assassinated the Sunny Ejiagwu, the All Progressives Congress chairman in Ideato North Local Government of Imo state. Sunny Ejiagwu was murdered earlier hours of Friday 27 July 2018.
Sunny Ejiagwu was elected the chairman of APC in Ideato North Local Government of Imo state just on Monday. He was among the 27 LGAs chairmen inaugurated on Monday by the new state chairman, Daniel Nwafor, after the state APC rescheduled election as ordered by the court.
Imo APC chairman assassinated by an unknown gunman as confirmed by the state commissioner of police, Dasuki Galandanchi, who said that the corpse had been evacuated to a nearby mortuary.
According to the CP, the politician was killed along the Akokwa road in the Ideato North LGA.
The CP said “the APC chairman in Ideato North has been murdered. I was at the scene of the crime and only came back. His corpse has been evacuated to a mortuary.
There is no preliminary suspicion but the investigator would find out. The blood of the innocent would expose them.”
The killing would be as a result of APC crisis that rocked the state of Imo State even though the National Chairman of the party has intervened and ordered the fresh APC state congress which saw the late Sunny Ejiagwu emerged as chairman of APC in Ideato North Local Government.
