Gunmen suspected to be political thugs in the early hours of Saturday shot and killed Emeka Nworie, the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ishielu LGA in Ebonyi state.

The late PDP chairman was attacked in his house in Ezzagu in Ishielu LGA and shot severally by his assailants on different parts of his body until he died, the police said.

Police spokesperson, Chris Anyanwu, confirmed the incident to our reporter. He said the incident took place at around 3 a.m. in the morning.

He said the assailants asked for money, which was generously given to them, yet they proceeded to shoot him to death.

Ebonyi Stat has witnessed politically-motivated killings since last November.

Two persons were killed earlier in the week in Ikwo when supporters of PDP and Labout Party clashed.

    This is callous, who ever did this will not escape the wrath of God, killing another man for whatever ambition is bad.God help us in Nigeria and take us to a level we begin to see election as fun and a way to make peaceful change for the good of all.
