Gunmen have reportedly killed the youth leader of the All Progressives Congress in Igboeze South Local Government Area of Enugu State, Lucky Okechukwu.
Police are yet to confirm the incident as details are still sketchy.
Our correspondent reliably gathered that the victim was shot dead last night in the Unadu area of the town.
A chieftain of the main opposition party in the state, who didn’t want his name mentioned because he was not authorised to speak for the party confirmed the incident.
“Yes, it is true. I don’t know his real name but we received information that he was shot dead by gunmen last night. If the party want to speak on the incident, it will definitely be going to issue a statement on that,” the source said.
When the state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Daniel Ndukwe, was contacted on the telephone, he could not take his calls or respond to text message.
