Honourable Uzozie Chukwujekwu, Special Adviser to former chairman of Nnewi South Local Government Area of Anambra State has been reportedly abducted by gunmen.
The community has been under siege for some time now, with the local government Secretariat burnt down earlier this week.
The criminals elements according to reports stormed the Umudiji Umuohama village in their numbers in the wee hours of Saturday.
Chukwujekwu was abducted from his house while his only son was shot in the stomach.
A source said the incident occurred around midnight, adding that the rampaging gunmen shot their way into the compound.
The source claimed the gunmen were infuriated following the victim’s reluctance in opening the gate for them.
“They forced their way into the family compound. The only son who was fatally shot in the belly has been rushed to the hospital where he is receiving treatment,” the source added.
