Written by thereachfm on February 27, 2019
Hundreds of community leaders from Ngor Okpala Local Government Area of Imo State, have begged security agencies in the state to end the killings in their area which they described as being politically sponsored.
This was made public in a statement by a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress in the LGA, Tony Anamelechi, who lamented that since the 2015 elections, residents of the community have been living in fear.
He added that the recent one which forced the community leaders to march to the Police headquarters in Owerri was the reported killing of Andrew Ugwuezomba, ward chairman of Umuohiagu/Logara who was murdered after a political meeting with his party leaders in the state.
Anamelechi further said that at the moment, suspected persons have allegedly been recruited into the community with the purpose of causing mayhem in and around the community.
