Suspected gunmen on Sunday killed the Senior Special Assistant to Gov. Willie Obiano on Security, Mr. Azubuike Ekweabalu.

Sources said the gunmen stormed the residence of Ekweabalu and allegedly stabbing him with a kitchen knife, leaving him in the pool of his own blood.

The incident occurred early hours of Sunday at his residence at the Commissioners’ Quarters Awka, a high brow area for government officials.

The late Ekwegbalu, who hails from Ogbunike in Oyi Local Government Area of the state, was a close relation to wife of the governor.

“He was murdered by unknown men last night at the commissioners’ quarters, Awka. This is barbaric. May his soul rest in peace.

“Security operatives must do all that is possible to bring the killers to justice,” the source said.

“On Aug. 9, 2020 at about 1:30a.m., there was a report of alleged murder of one Azuibuike Ekwegbalu, aged 43 years, native of Ogbunike in Oyi LGA but resident at the Commissioners quarters Awka.

“Following the report, Police detectives attached to ‘B’ Division Awka led by the DPO, CSP Emma Ogbuanya visited the scene and rushed victim who was found in a pool of blood to COOUTH Awka for medical attention.

“He was certified dead by the medical doctor on arrival while his corpse was deposited at the hospital mortuary for autopsy,” he noted.

Mohammed said a careful observation on the deceased body revealed stab wounds while a blood stained Kitchen knife was also recovered as exhibit at the scene.

“Consequently, one suspect who allegedly was in the premises has been arrested and the case is under investigation to unravel the circumstances surrounding the incident,” he stated.
