Unknown gunmen are said to have killed the Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, in Ohofia Agba Ward, Monday Idoko, in Ebonyi State’s Ishielu Local Government Area.

He was shot in the head last night around 11:00 p.m. in his Onueke village, Ohofia-Agba community.

In a telephone interview, a relative of the deceased family, who spoke in tears and requested anonymity, said the assailants entered the village, dragged the victim who was sleeping, and shot him in the head.

“My brother’s story is extremely traumatic. A family member informed me that some unknown armed individuals broke into their home shortly before midnight, dragged him out, and shot him in the head.

“They wanted to rush him to the hospital but he died in the village. We have been in mourning mood since last night”.

An APGA supporter in the area, who pleaded anonymity disclosed that late Idoko was busy making arrangements for a rescheduled visit to the area by the APGA Governorship candidate, Professor Benard Odoh before his life was cut shot by men of the underworld.

He described the deceased as an industrious young man who gave his all in service for the Party and humanity.

Recall that APGA Governorship candidate’s convoy was attacked penultimate week near the same Agba, where his driver and a Police Inspector were assassinated and others sustained varying degrees of injuries.

Another APGA supporter in Ohaukwu Local Government Area, Oscar Elom was also murdered in the same manner, as he too was dragged out from his shop at Ngbo and shot on the head.

Many political observers are speculating that members and leaders of APGA were being attacked and some killed in some parts of the State, in order to whittle down the political influence and support the party was gaining ahead of 2023 general elections.
