Listen to article

Smith Chiedoziem Anyanwu, the ward chairman for Ife/Akpodim/Chokoneze Ward in Imo State’s Ezinihitte Mbaise council area for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), met a tragic end as he was killed by unknown gunmen.

The Party’s Director of New Media, Lancelot Obiaku, confirmed the incident to journalists in Owerri on Friday.

‘It is true that the incident happened,’ Obiaku said.

He opted not to delve further into the details surrounding the murder of the PDP ward chairman while confirming the incident. Reports indicate that this unfortunate event transpired last week Thursday.

‘He was killed in the presence of his wife. Eyewitnesses said the assailants were two in number, and rode on a motorbike. On arrival, they met his wife and asked about her husband. As soon as they sighted, and identified him, they fired several shots at him and left only when they confirmed he had taken his last breath.’

‘The Ward Chairman’s murder has shaken both the PDP family and his community to their very foundation. Coming on the heels of the technical knockout the Party suffered in the November 11, 2023 Governorship election in the State, his murder couldn’t have been more depressing.’

‘However, an unnamed Party woman has recently threatened to harm him since after the last governorship election in Imo,’ he added.

At the time of compiling this report, there was no response from the State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Henry Okoye, to an inquiry about the matter.
