It was gathered that the gunmen invaded the Ebubeagu Commander’s house on New Year’s Day, and killed his seven-month-pregnant wife, Urenma Kalu Chima and their two children.

The assailants also burnt Chima’s two houses during the attack in the early hours of 2:30 am of January 1st, 2023.

Speaking to The Nation on Wednesday, Chima said that the attack was fueled by the recent clashes between supporters of two political heavyweights in Ekoli Edda, in the same local government.

“On 1st January, 2023, I was sleeping in my bed with my wife and my two kids when I heard a gunshot in front of my house which woke me up immediately.

“I walked to the window and opened the curtain and saw men with Ak-47 riffles numbering about 19 and I know them all.

“One of them, who is the coordinator of one of the development centres in our local government, was positioning them, ordering them to cordon off my house. Some of them hit my door twice. I told my wife let’s run away.

“Because of my wife’s pregnancy, she couldn’t run. When the door was hit the third time, I left my wife and my children in the backyard. I jumped the fence and landed on where villagers throw waste.

“I laid there and heard the last gunshot and my wife shouted and couldn’t talk again. They poured fuel on my two houses and set them on fire.

“I called my PA to go and see what was happening in my house. When he got there, they had finished everything they were doing and he saw the dead body of my wife and my two kids there.

“I called one of my neighbours who assisted me because I was no longer in order and they came and assisted in carrying my wife’s dead body to the mortuary and deposited it.

“As I am talking to you, the coordinator of one of the development centres in the local government who led the group has been arrested. He is in the crack office of the state police command in Abakaliki here.

“Others are on the run but the police are seriously looking for a way to arrest them. These group of people went and burnt the State APC Chairman’s House and killed his brother. Unfortunately, police shot one of them in the leg that day they perpetrated the act.

“He ran to Ohafia in Abia State with the bullet. He was finding a way to remove the bullet and he couldn’t see it. The doctor there told him to get a police report before he can remove the bullet and he doesn’t have any way to get the police report.

“He called one of them that followed them and attacked my house and told him that he should beg me as a Commander of Ebubeagu to meet DPO to give him a police report for him to use so that doctor can remove the bullet from him. I met the Assistant Commissioner of Police and reported it to him.”

KanyiDaily had also reported how many people were injured when gunmen killed two members of Ebubeagu security operatives in Ebonyi State.
