BREAKING; Police declare Guber candidate wanted few days to elections

The governorship candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance(APGA) in Ebonyi State, Ifeanyi Odoh, has been declared wanted by the state police command over the murder of a Monarch, Igbokwe Ewa.

Odoh and others were declared wanted after the ruling All Progressive Congress(APC) accused them of sponsoring the killing of the monarch.

Until he was gunned down by unknown gunmen last week Monday, the monarch was the traditional ruler of Umu-Ezekoha community in Ezza North local government area of the state.

But Odoh vehemently denied the allegation, stating that the monarch, who hails from same local government with him, was like a father to him.


But the state police, however, declared him wanted alongside nine other persons in connection with the murder of the monarch.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Onome Onovwakpoyeya, disclosed this in a statement today.

He said: “The Ebonyi State Police Command has declared the under-listed persons wanted in connection with the murder of his Royal Highness Eze Christopher Igboke Ewa of Umu-Ezekoha Community in Ezza North.”

He listed others on the wanted list to include: Samuel Onyekachi Aligwe, Peter Orogwu (aka one boy),Chukwudi Aliewa (aka Ezza) and Chika Ezealigbo

Others are : Nnaemeka Egede (aka Champaign), Nnabuike Okohu, Ogobuchi Agbom (aka Okiri), Nonso Obasi, Ikechukwu Nwoba (aka Solid).

The Nation recalled that late last year, Odoh and his convoy were attacked in Izzi local government.

Though no live was lost in that attack, one of the cars in his convoy was damaged by gunshot fired by attackers.

Odoh was again a victim of deadly attack in Ishielu local government area, during which a police officer and his personal driver died.

The home of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) House of Representatives candidate for Izzi/Abakaliki constituency, Barnabas Ofoke was also attacked by gunmen last month.

Cars and other valuables in the compound used as campaign ground of the party’s governorship candidate, Ifeanyi Odii, were destroyed.

An APC supporter was also killed last month in Íshielu local government area as gunmen opened fire on a campaign ground in the area.

As of press time, Odoh could not be reached for comments, just as his Media Aide, Charles Otu also failed to take calls placed to his phone numbers at the time of this report.
