According to Punch, the victim has been identified as Kenneth Amukamara.
The hoodlums also burnt Kenneth’s house and damaged the vehicles of his brother, who is said to be a retired soldier.
The incident, which happened at Umuokwe, Eziawo 1, in the local government area, heightened tension in the area.
“His house was set ablaze too. Efforts made to confirm the ugly incident from the Imo State PDP Youth Leader, Greg Nwadike, who travelled to Abuja for an official assignment, proved abortive as of the time of making this post.
“Information had it that his elder brother was targeted too for assassination, but he was able to escape as he is a retired military officer. Kenneth’s house and vehicles were not spared as they were set ablaze and vandalised.”
Nwadike said the party, especially the youth wing, was saddened by the killing.
