Must Read

Special Adviser to former chairman of Nnewi South Local Government Area of Anambra State, Hon. Uzozie Chukwujekwu has been allegedly abducted by gunmen.

The community has been under siege for some time now, with the local government Secretariat burnt down earlier this week.

The hoodlums reportedly stormed the Umudiji Umuohama village in their numbers in the early hours of Saturday.

Chukwujekwu was reportedly abducted from his house while his only son was shot in the stomach.

A source said the incident occurred around midnight, noting that the rampaging gunmen shot their way into the compound.

The source claimed the gunmen were infuriated following the victim’s reluctance in opening the gate for them.

“They forced their way into the family compound. The only son who was fatally shot in the belly has been rushed to the hospital where he is receiving treatment,” the source added.
