Ebonyi Commissioner escapes assassination


ABAKALIKI—EBONYI State Commissioner for Grants and Donor Agencies, Elder Fred Udeogu, has escaped assassination in the hands of unknown gunmen at his hometown in Ikwo local government area of the state.

An eyewitness, Mr. Ifeanyi Mbam, explained that some miscreants, who laid ambush for the commissioner while he was returning from the burial of the grandmother of wife to Senator Igwe Nwagu, blocked Opera Road at Ndiagu Achara community in Ikwo LGA council in order to unleash mayhem on their victim but failed.
