Some unidentified gunmen have reportedly killed Hon. Lucky Okechukwu, the youth leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Igboeze South Local Government Area of Enugu State
Although details of the incident are still sketchy, SaharaReporters gathered that Okechukwu was shot dead on Saturday night in Unadu town.
A chieftain of the party in the state, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorised to speak for the party, confirmed the incident.
“Yes, it is true. I don’t know his real name but we received information that he was shot dead by unknown gunmen last night. If the party wants to speak on the incident, it is definitely going to issue a statement on that,” the source said.
The police have yet to confirm the incident and when SaharaReporters called the spokesperson for the state police command, DSP Daniel Ndukwe, he neither answered the calls nor replied to a text message sent to him, seeking information about the incident.
