Following the burning of the home of the Afikpo-South Ebubeagu Commander, Oyeku Kalu Chima, located in the Owutu Edda community by suspected hoodlums in the region, everything does not appear to be well in the Afikpo South Local Government Area of Ebonyi State.
His wife Urenwa Kalu Chima was brutally murdered as a result of the revolting incident, which occurred on January 1st, 2023 at around 2:30 a.m.
Apparently, she was shot to death, according to a witness.
Ebonyi State Police Command, which confirmed the incident added that “it has not been established who perpetrated the dastardly act; however, the said Ebubeagu Commander alleged that it was one Okporie Ashango and his cohorts that did it.
“The Commissioner of Police in the state, CP Aliyu Garba, has directed that immediate investigation be activated by the Deputy Commissioner of Police in-charge of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID) to unravel those behind the crimes.
“Further to that, detectives of the SCIID and operatives of the Command’s Tactical Teams have taken over proceedings in the area as the CP orders that the perpetrators must be fished out and brought to book pronto.
“It is rather unfortunate that mischief-makers are still fomenting fracas in the state in spite of the grace of witnessing a new year!,” the Police spokesman added.
Three people were killed last December in the Ekoli-Edda village of the Afikpo South LGA of Ebonyi; this resulted in the murder of the Ebubeagu Commander’s home in the Owutu Edda community and the death of his wife.
