Share This

Two traditional rulers at Nnenasa in Njaba Local Government Area of Imo were on Tuesday murdered by gunmen, according to the state police command.

Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, Mike Abattam, said the incident occurred on Tuesday.

The police spokesperson, however, said investigations were ongoing to ascertain the circumstances surrounding the incident.

The gunmen had stormed a meeting venue of some traditional rulers and stakeholders at Nnenasa where they opened fire, killing the two traditional rulers instantly.

A witness said the incident left those who attended the meeting scampering for safety.

“The gunmen shot sporadically, hitting the traditional rulers in the process and left the scene almost immediately,” the source said, adding that many people were injured.

The source gave the names of the dead as Eze E. Duruebere of Okwudor autonomous community and Eze Sampson Osunwa of Ihebinowerre autonomous community, both in Njaba.
