The Imo State Commandant of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Raji Ibrahim has narrated how Imo North Action Alliance senatorial district candidate, Ndubuisi Emenike, was killed.
The late Emenike was allegedly shot dead by one Sydney Ogudoro, an Assistant Superintendent of the Corps.
The commandant, who sympathized with the people of the state and Nigerians at large over the sudden death, pacified the people and assured them that the corps would not leave any stone unturned in the investigation of the matter.
Assuring the people that Civil Defence Corps and other sister security agencies would investigate the matter thoroughly, Ibrahim described the suspect, Sydney Ogudoro, as one of the most tactical officers of the command.
“We don’t want to believe that it was an accidental discharge because, in the Civil Defence Corps, we don’t believe in accidental discharge, this is because the suspect is one of our senior officers,” he added.
The suspect who was not directly attached to the deceased had allegedly shot him at a party recently organised in the state.
Ibrahim said, “The shooting of the deceased was not intentional as people had it. He had already released a shot in the air to scare people but on coming down with the riffle, somebody from crowd mistakenly hit him at the shoulder and the bullet pulled out.”
