The youth leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Igboeze South local government area of Enugu state, Lucky Okechukwu has been killed by terrorists, PUNCH has reported.
Although the state Police command had not confirmed the incident, it was reliably gathered that the victim was shot dead Saturday night in the Unadu area.
A chieftain of the main opposition party in the state, who didn’t want his name mentioned because he was not authorised to speak for the party confirmed the incident.
“Yes, it is true. I don’t know his real name but we received information that he was shot dead by gunmen last night. If the party want to speak on the incident, it will definitely be going to issue a statement on that,” the source said.
When the state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Daniel Ndukwe, was contacted on the telephone, he could not take his calls or respond to text message.
