JUST IN: Gunmen abduct ex-Imo traditional council chair

Eze Samuel Agunwa Ohiri, the former chairman of Imo state council of traditional rulers, has been reportedly abducted by gunmen.

Reports say the monarch was whisked away by the hoodlums in the early hours of Saturday from his residence in Orodo Mbaitoli LGA of Imo state.

The unidentified gunmen had taken the monarch to an unknown destination and are yet to make a statement.

Eze Ohiri is the traditional ruler of Orodo autonomous community in Mbaitoli LGA of Imo, and served as the state chairman of the traditional institution under Rochas Okorocha, former governor of the state.

An indigene of the community who relayed the development to journalists said, “Eze Samuel Ohiri former Chairman of Imo state Council of Traditional Rulers has been kidnapped few hours ago in Orodo, his country home”.

“The community, as I speak, is in palpable tension as many have fled for their dear lives. We are yet to hear from the family who came home for Christmas.”

When contacted, Henry Okoye, Imo police command spokesperson, said he had yet to be briefed about the development but would revert when the command has been fully apprised.
