The Action Alliance (AA’s) candidate in the Imo North Senatorial District in the 2019 National Assembly election, Mr Ndubuisi Emenike has been shot dead.
The Imo State Police Command confirmed the killing to Journalists on Sunday, January 26, 2020.
Speaking on the issue, Police spokesman, Mr Orlando Ikeokwu told Journalists that Mr Emenike was shot dead by the NSCDC Official during a celebration Party held in honour of APC’s Miriam Onuoha, the winner of the Okigwe North Federal Constituency.
The said NSCDC operative is said to have been attached to the AA Senatorial candidate and had escorted him to the victory Party.
Witnesses revealed that the NSCDC official was shooting consistently into the air and mistakenly shot his Boss, disrupting the Party which was already underway.
Mr Emenike fell and lost consciousness and was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital.
