PDP chieftain in Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni LGA, chief Lucky Ajie (Idu), has been assassinated. Chief Ajie was shot dead by some unknown gunmen in his country home, Okposi. Sources say he was trailed and murdered in front of his compound on Thursday, April 28. Condemning the killing, former chief of staff of ONELGA Council, Mr Chijioke Ejebide, who visited the family members to commiserate with them described the dastardly murder of chief Ajie, as regretful.
Ejebide called on the police to investigate the murder and bring the culprits to book. Okposi community is the home of Onyekachi Nwokocha, former Rivers state commissioner for power. The death of Chief Aije highlights the alarming rate of extrajudicial killings in Rivers ststae. It would be recalled that about a month ago, some yet-to-be identified gunmen murdered Franklin Obi, an APC chieftain, his wife, and 18-year-old son in their residence in Omoku, Ogba-Egbema-Ndoni local government area of Rivers state.
