Gunmen went on rampage last weekend in Imo State, killing a commissioner and two others in different location.

One person was also abducted in Ikenegbu Layout in Owerri.

Mr Tobias Onyeleke who is the Chairman, Imo State House of Assembly Commission and a former chairman of Ihitteuboma Local Council of the state, was shot dead in front of a popular eatery along Ugwu Orji at about 5pm on Sunday, January 25.

According to reports, the deceased is said to have resisted the orders of the gunmen to come down from his car which led to his shooting.

Two other victims were killed on Sunday by hoodlums suspected to be the same gunmen that killed Mr Tobias Onyeleke.

The State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Abdulmajid Ali, has revealed that police in all the 27 local councils have been ordered to investigate and bring the perpetuators to book.

 “Some crime incidents happened.  They killed one in Nkwerre, Orlu and kidnapped one in Ikenegbu, in the process they wounded some policemen who were around to rescue the victim. They still took the victim. We are investigating seriously,” Ali said.
