According to ANAEDOO LINE.NG investigations, the monarch was shot dead in the state on Sunday evening by gunmen presumed to be thugs.

On Tuesday, the Ebonyi State Government acknowledged the occurrence.

In a statement by the Commissioner for Information in the state, Mr Uchenna Orji, Governor David Umahi directed security agencies to move into the Ezza North council for a rescue mission as anybody found culpable in the murder of the monarch will be arrested.
