Gunmen have killed four relatives of Chairman of Ikwo Local Government Area of Ebonyi State, Steve Orogwu.

The incident occurred on Tuesday night at the chairman’s home town in Ekpaomaka before he returned home.

Daily Trust learnt that the gunmen shot four relatives of the council boss. While three of them died on the spot, the fourth vicitm gave up the ghost on the way to the hospital.

Orogwu confirmed the incident to our correspondent, adding that the invaders razed down his family house.

The corpses of the victims have been deposited in a mortuary in Abakaliki metropolis.

The reason for the attack could not be ascertained as of the time of filing this report.

However, the Ebonyi State Police Command has yet to issue a statement on the matter.

But the Special Security Consultant (SSC) to Ebonyi State Government, Chief Stanley Okoro Emegha, who confirmed the incident, described it as barbaric and unfortunate.
Emegha made this known in a statement on Wednesday and made available to Daily Trust.
The Special Security Consultant who also condemned the act, noted  that it came when the state was being celebrated as the most peaceful and economic vibrant state in the country.
He however said normalcy had returned to the area while security had been beefed up.
He said, “I want to reiterate the fact that there is no safe haven for crimes in the state. For some of them that engage on guerrilla warfare, the security personnel will not and never allow them to threaten the existing peace in the state.
“May I also console the family of elder Orogwu and the entire people of Ikwo Local Government Area for the unfortunate incident. May Almighty God grant the deceased eternal rest in his bosom.”
