Unknown gunmen have assassinated the father of the South East Deputy National President, Online Media Practitioners Association of Nigeria ( OMPAN), Chukwu Ogbu, a senior editor with Ebonyi Daily and Igbere TV.
DEZ MAYORZ, via Igbere TV gathered that he was shot in his selling store in Evo LG area of Ebonyi State and they left him in the pool of his own blood on Saturday night.
Speaking over the ugly incident, Ogbu said :
“My dad has been assassinated by unknown Assailants. He was shot and left in the pool of his own blood. An innocent man who served 35yrs in the Nigeria Police & retired, they murdered him in cold blood.”
“My mum was there, they lied both face down, bring my dad up and said ‘ PAPA WE NEED YOU’ , and shot him, touched his heart and confirmed him dead and Left without touching anything even his phone.”
“My pregnant wife traumatized and unconscious after witnessing it.”
“This is too much for a man to bear in a single night”.
The Management and Staff of DEZ MAYORZ Nigeria, Igbere TV and OMPAN members are currently in tears over the incident and urge the security agencies to investigate the killing and arrest the criminals.
We pray that God will give the family the fortitude to bear the lost.
Come to think of it, excessive insecurity and killings across the country is getting out of hand. From bandits killing in Zamfara, Kaduna, Kastina. Fulani herdsmen killing in Anambra, Boko Haram killing in Borno and cultists crash in Emohua LGA in Rivers State. All these happened within a week and the Federal government is absolutely doing nothing about it. This is condemnable.
