Ebubeagu official shot in Ebonyi @APC congress - ITREALMS

ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news!

The Police Command in Ebonyi State has commenced investigations into the shooting of an official of Ebubeagu Security Network (ESN) on Saturday, reports 
ITREALMS.

The official, simply identified as Seriki, was reportedly shot during the All Progressives Congress (APC) ward congress in Ugwuachara area of Ebonyi Local Government Area of the state.

The Commissioner of Police, CP Aliyu Garba, said on Sunday that investigations had commenced on the incident.

“We are still investigating the incident and we will brief the press at the end of the investigation,” he said.

Other sources, however, gave different versions of the incident, which made residents of the area scamper for safety.

One of the sources said that the Ebubeagu official was shot during an exchange of gunfire with some unknown gunmen who attempted to snatch the ward congress voting materials.

“The Ebubeagu personnel, with the assistance of security agencies, engaged the unknown gunmen who later fled the scene, having being overpowered.

“The personnel was hit during the crossfire, while efforts to revive him at the Alex-Ekwueme Federal Teaching Hospital Abakaliki yielded no result,” the source narrated.

Another source, however, said it was during the exchange of fire that an official of one of the security agencies accidentally shot the Ebubeagu operative.

“He was mistakenly shot by a security official, as they were pursuing the fleeing gunmen,” he said.
