February 13, (THEWILL) – Gunmen, on Monday, attacked the Senator representing Imo-North senatorial district (Okigwe zone), Patrick Ndubueze, killing one of his orderlies.
Spokesperson of the State Police Command, Henry Okoye, said the state commissioner of police, Aboki Danjuma, has set up a tactical team to go after the attackers
Although details of the incident are sketchy, THEWILL gathered that the gunmen attacked the senator’s residence on Monday morning.
A resident in the area, said the senator managed to escape unharmed, but of the policemen assigned to him was fatally shot.
According to the source, the gunmen “stormed his residence at Umualumoke and killed a policeman working for him.
“They invaded his house and one of his policemen was gunned down in the process. It could be the same set of hoodlums that also ambushed the Correctional Service in Okigwe and set prisoners free after killing a police inspector and abducting the officer in charge of the centre.
“Okigwe has become a war zone where no one is saved. We are living in total fear. Most of our youths have run away for fear of being killed. Our security agencies are not doing enough to combat crimes in the state. Yet, there are so many of them (security men) in this area.”
