Ebonyi government condemns killing of four persons by gunmen


Ebonyi State Government has condemned the killings of four persons by unknown gunmen in the house of the Chairman of Ikwo Local Council, describing it as most barbaric and unfortunate.

In a statement, yesterday, in Abakaliki, the Special Security Consultant to the state government, Chief Stanley Emegha, noted that the despicable act came at a time when the state is being celebrated as the most peaceful and economically vibrant state in the country.

Gunmen had invaded the house of Chief Steve Orogwu, the Chairman of the council and killed his 75-year-old elder brother, his two sons and a security guard in the compound.

While expressing sadness that the perpetrators of the dastardly act did not project the image of the state in a good light, nor did they represent the ideals of the people, he said normalcy has, since, returned to the area as more surveillance has been mounted in the area and parts of the state.
