According to a source close to the former governor, the driver’s quickness allowed the ex-governor to escape.

The former governor was the main target, but his driver was clever enough to outsmart them because they were driving to obstruct him, the source claimed.

Because their primary target had gotten away, they burned his backup car by blocking it. Along with him, four officers were burned.

The Eastern Updates reports that a reinforcement escorted him to his home from Owerri, the state capital.

In another report, Mr. Hon Ike Okolo who is the President-General of Obosi Community a town in Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra State was on Monday night shot dead by some yet-to-be-identified gunmen.

The Eastern Updates gathered that Okolo was shot dead in a petrol station in the community by yet-to-be-identified gunmen at about 8pm, a day after the new year.

A video that is currently circulating on social media showed that the community leader was shot right inside his SUV, as he sat in a pool of his own blood, behind the steering of the car.

Obosi is one town known to be notorious for cult clashes, a development the President-General is said to have stood against, since he ascended office.
