Mr. Chukwuma Ojukwu, (a.k.a. Agujiugo) first son to the former traditional ruler of Awka-Etiti, late Igwe Akum Ojukwu, has been assassinated by yet to be identified assailants.

He was killed in 2his residence at Awka-Etiti community by unidentified armed men who stormed his residence in a bus.

The deceased who purportedly sustained machete cuts had reportedly gone to bed hale and hearty the previous night.

The news of his assassination has reportedly thrown the community into fear, panic and confusion.

In the words of an indigene who pleaded anonymity, “this is what we saw today and nobody was around with him to give account of what happened am how he was assassinated”

“He was always alone in that his father’s palace, his mother and siblings never stayed with him in that palace after the death of his father, late Igwe Akum Ojukwu, who was our monarch”

According to him, “it is left for the police to do a discrete investigation to expose those behind the dastardly act”, he stated.

Another indigene, who simply identified herself as Miss Roseline, stated that, “as you can see fear has gripped us, assassins stormed our community, killed first son of our late monarch and left unchallenged the way they came. That means security in our community is porous.

“I was told they came with a bus but nobody could say the number of the vehicle. We are now living in fear.

“If the assailants are not fished out that will mean that we will live in perpetual fear of the unknown until thy kingdom come” he further stated.
