Gunmen have killed the Young Progressives Party (YPP) chairman in Ibeme ward, Isiala Mbano Local Government Area of Imo State, David Uche.
He was gunned down in front of his family house on Wednesday at about 7:30am.
According to an eyewitness, the gunmen, suspected to be vigilante operatives, arrived in a Sienna and a Lexus 300.
They were thought to have been hired by a man who came to settle a score with the Ifeanyi over N100,000 debt.
State Chairman of YPP, Victor Diala, confirmed the incident.
He said: “It happened. The young man was shot right in front of his house.
“The funny thing is that they took his body to Federal Medical Centre, Owerri (FMC) where they tagged it ‘unknown gunman’.”
Police spokesman, Michael Abattam, could not be reached for comments.
