Rt Hon Ozurigbo Visits Home of Nkwerre Youth Leader Shot By Robbers

Gunmen suspected to be armed robbers have shot and murdered one of the youth leaders of the People’s Democratic Party in Imo state, Mr Chidi Eburuaja.

Eburuaja, until his death was the PDP youth leader in Owerre Nkworji, the political ward of the  House Of Representatives Committee Chairman on Banking and Currency, Jones Onyereri.

His brother Nnamdi Eburuaja who confirmed his death, said the victim had driven to a nearby pharmacy when he was waylaid by the gunmen.

The source said, “Three armed men in a motorcycle attempted to snatch his Passat car and in the process shot him.

“They were trying to snatch his vehicle but because it was tilted as it fell into the drainage it wouldn't start, so the hoodlums thought he had some sort of security on it, so they shot him."
“He was first taken to Joint Hospital, Amaigbo, but was later transferred to UNTH Enugu where he died this morning (Saturday).”

Deputy Speaker, Imo State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Ozurigbo Ugonna was among the first callers at the home of the deceased whose brother is incidentally a very close political associate.

Rt Hon Ozurigbo called for improved security in the area why praying that God gives the family the strength to bear the loss.
