Okorocha Places N20m Bounty On Killers Of Imo APC Chieftain

The Newly Elected Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ideato North Local Government Area of Imo State, Mr Sunny Ejiagwu have been murdered earlier today.

Naija News learnt that  Ejiagwu was killed along the Orlu-Akokwa Road on his way home, shortly after attending a meeting at the APC Secretariat in Owerri, the state capital

The Imo State Police Command  Spokesman, Mr Andrew Enwerem who confirmed the incident said details of the attack were still sketchy and that the police have started an investigation into it.

The Imo State APC Chairman, Daniel Nwafor, condemned the killing, describing it as unfortunate and unwarranted.

Mr Nwafor told reporters at the party’s state secretariate that the murder was capable of causing political chaos in the state. He called on the security agencies to urgently launch a manhunt for the perpetrators of the act.

He recalled that the deceased had raised fears over his safety on Thursday during one of their meetings, decrying the volatile nature of his local government. Mr Nwafor, however, called on party supporters in the state to remain calm as the security agencies work to ensure the perpetrators were brought to justice.

However, the Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha has promised a reward of N20 million to anyone with useful information on the killers of  Mr Sunny Ejiagwu.
