Gunmen kill APC Youth leader in Enugu



Four US staff killed in Anambra Gunmen kill 5 policemen, couple in Imo

Hon. Lucky Idoko, a former councilman and All Progressives Congress (APC) youth leader in Enugu State’s Igbo-Eze South local government area, was shot and killed by unknown gunmen.

Idoko, a councillor who represented the Unadu community, is thought to have been killed on Saturday while conducting business in the village on a motorcycle.

Although specifics of his assassination are still hazy, reports claim that Idoko, who also serves as the leader of a vigilante organisation in his neighbourhood, was shot while the person he was carrying on his motorbike at the time of the incident managed to escape unharmed.

A source who spoke under anonymity told correspondents; ”The APC chieftain was going about his business in his hometown in Unadu when the incident happened.


“What we don’t know is why he should be killed at this critical political moment. I don’t also know if he has problem with his security outfit of which he is the head.”
