Latest report reaching News Carrier NG says a youth leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and three other members of his family were assassinated on Tuesday in Oru-East Local Government Area of Imo State.
The national youth leader of the PDP confirmed the story to News Carrier NG and thereafter posted the update via his verified twitter account.
The News Carrier NG had earlier reported that the victim, Kenneth Amukamara was not only assassinated but his house was also set ablaze. The assassins also damaged the vehicles of his brother, who is said to be a retired soldier.
A journalist, Don Uba, who gave an account of the incident noted that residents of the area were in panic.
Uba said, “The Peoples Democratic Party youth leader in the Oru-East LGA, Kenneth Amukamara, was assassinated this morning (Tuesday) in his country home.
“His house was set ablaze too. Efforts made to confirm the ugly incident from the Imo State PDP Youth Leader, Greg Nwadike, who travelled to Abuja for an official assignment, proved abortive as of the time of making this post.
“Information had it that his elder brother was targeted too for assassination, but he was able to escape as he is a retired military officer. Kenneth’s house and vehicles were not spared as they were set ablaze and vandalised.”
