The Odohzhia Ebonyi Campaign council regrets to officially announce the passing away of Inspector Ibrahim Kudu, a Police Inspector who was shot on the chest during the attack on the APGA Governorship candidate in Ebonyi, Professor Benard Odoh last week’s Thursday night.
He died earlier today at the Alex Ekwueme Federal Teaching Hospital, Abakaliki, AE-FUTHA from injuries he sustained during the gun duel with assassins who attacked the convoy of our Gubernatorial candidate while on his way back from a campaign rally in Ezzaegu, Ishielu Local Government Area of the State.
Kudu, a native of Niger State and a devote Muslim was posted to Professor Odoh from the Special Protection Unit, SPU, Base 4 Portharcourt, Rivers State.
His body will be laid to rest today according to Muslim rites in his home State.
Meantime, operatives of Ebubeagu Security Network in Ohaukwu LGA has shot and killed one Elom Oscar Chinonso, a native of Ndiagu orie, UmuOgudu Akpu Ngbo community in Ohaukwu Local Government Area of the State. The young business man was reportedly killed in his shop.
A member and an ardent supporter of APGA from the area who spoke about the ugly incident said the victim was shot by armed Ebubeagu operatives who rode on a branded APC Sienna vehicle.
Again, our hearts are severely grieved that the Ebonyi State APC government under the leadership of Engr. David Umahi has continued on it’s mute mode while watching rampaging Ebubeagu militia kill innocent citizens of our dear State all for power grabbing.
While calling on the Police authorities to now expedite action in arresting those who attacked our Governorship candidate’s convoy to speedy justice, we also reiterate our persistent calls on the Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba to bring his words to effect that all deadly quasi security outfit like Ebubeagu will not feature or partake in the activities leading to and during and after the February 25th and March 11th general elections in Nigeria.
For us, this is one attack, too many. May the souls of the faithfully-departed rest in the bossom of the Lord!
