Imo govt lists names of APC chieftains, govt official killed by gunmen

by OkeomaNews

The Imo State government on Tuesday listed the names of government officials and chieftains of All Progressives Congress killed by gunmen.

In a statement issued by the state commissioner for information and strategy, Declan Emelumba, condemning the beheading of the Sole Administrator of the Ideato North Local Government Area of the state, Chris Ohizu, the government said that the killers have been targeting government officials and their friends.

The statement listed the victims as Hon. Mrs Jenny Rachael Okonkwo (Iron Lady), Orlu APC LGA woman leader, 

Nze Chidi Ejiaka, 

Barr. Darlington Odume, Nze Nwachukwu Igboayaka,

Mrs Helen Nnakwe, Collins Okey Agah,

Chukwudi Dimagwu  

Eddy Ofuefule, all APC chieftains from Orlu and many others as well as Emma Mazi, former IMC chairman of Oguta LGA. 

The statement read “the Government of Imo State is saddened by the brutal and cruel murder on Sunday, January 22nd, of the Sole Administrator of Ideato North local government, Chris Ohizu .

“The chilling assassination of Mr. Ahizu in cold blood is as benumbing as it is calous. This killing falls in line with the targeting of members of the ruling APC, government officials and their friends. 

“Those previously murdered in cold blood include; Hon. Mrs Jenny Rachael Okonkwo (Iron Lady), Orlu APC LGA woman leader, 

Nze Chidi Ejiaka, 

Barr. Darlington Odume, Nze Nwachukwu Igboayaka,

Mrs Helen Nnakwe, Collins Okey Agah,

Chukwudi Dimagwu  

Eddy Ofuefule, all APC chieftains from Orlu and many others as well as Emma Mazi, former IMC chairman of Oguta LGA. 

“It is unfortunate that even those who are quick to shout over insecurity in the state, never found their voices to condemn these cold blooded killings in the past and are not saying anything also on the latest killing 

“Be that as it may, Government condemns this cold blooded murder on a Sunday and appeals to the perpetrators of the dastardly act and their sponsors to resist the temptation of going ahead with this blood letting which has plunged the state into the current state of uncertainty.

“While Government condoles with the family of the  deceased, it has charged the security agencies to leave no stone unturned in finding those behind the killing and bring them to book. In the same vein, government will continue to collaborate with security agencies to ensure the safety of lives and property in the state .”

WE ARE NO LONGER IN THE STATE OF CONFUSION ANY MORE, RIGHT NOW, WE ARE TOTALLY CONFUSED WITH THE HAPPENINGS IN IMO STATE ESPECIALLY!

WITH THIS JAMAIS-VU ET JAMAIS-CRU HAPPENING IN THE SOUTHEAST OF THIS OUR COUNTRY NIGERIA MOSTLY IN IMO STATE ESPECIALLY.

Abnecio, we thought it was politically motivated.

As time went on, we thought it was caused by IPOB.

At a time, we thought it was the Ebubeagu.

Time still moving, we thought it was as a result of desperation between the formation of ESN and Ebubeagu. Who will supercedes each other.
At a time, we thought it had been hijacked by hoodlums, by vagabondos, by miscreants, by in-house enemies, by jealousy, by Political mongers, by power intoxication, by haters of progress, by hardships caused by ineptness of opportunists leaderships, by envious individuals, by joblessness and animalistic individuals commonly called informants, by tribalistic humans, by different religious believers, a long the line, we thought it was the EndSARS, by kidnappers, by the herdsmen, by the fulanis or by the boko haram, by banditry and finally by insurgency.

We are confused in it’s entirety because all these classes of obfuscation state of our minds in Imo state right now because all of them denied been responsible neither being involved as the perpetrators of this ‘ jamais-vu and jamais-cru decimation and destroying of people ‘s properties happening in Imo state recently.

We are no longer hopeful that things will ever come back to to normalcy again as things have fallen apart and the center cannot hold again. More days more barbarities continue happening.
The worst of it all right now is that we are in a serious jeopardy that both reasonable and non reasonable human beings are longer free. Everybody is now confused for nobody knows who is gonna be the next victim anytime and any moment.

” Le monde S’effondre totalement’.

Confused! Confused!! Confused!!!.
