Bloody Tuesday in Imo State as gunmen kill two traditional rulers, abduct others (Updated: 7 months ago)


Unknown gunmen on Tuesday evening opened fire on traditional rulers having a meeting in Imo State and killed two of them in the process.

Among the monarchs confirmed dead were the Obi 1 of Okwudor autonomous community, Eze E. Anayochukwu Durueburuo, and Eze Sampson Osunwa of the Ihebineowerre autonomous community.

The monarchs were holding a stakeholders’ meeting at the Njaba Local Council headquarters at Nnenasam when the incident happened.

It is understood that the surviving traditional rulers were left with varying degrees of injuries.

The armed men, who invaded the venue of the stakeholder's meeting, according to an eyewitness, moved into the hall and left the two other traditional rulers of the Nkume community and Eze Akpaka with broken heads and hands.

An unconfirmed report said some of the monarchs at that stakeholder's meeting were taken away by the gunmen to an unknown destination.

Our Source learned that the council headquarters was in a state of shambles at the time of filing this report.

When contacted on phone, the police spokesperson in the state, Mike Abattam, said that two monarchs had been confirmed dead and not five as claimed by some media reports.

In the meantime, the command had commenced investigation into the incident.
