4 Gunmen Kill Newly Sworn-in LG Secretary

Four unidentified gunmen have killed the newly
sworn-in Ukanafun Local Government Council
Secretary in Akwa Ibom, Mr Ime Atakpa. Atakpa was shot when he was in his farm in his
backyard at Ukanafun on Sunday. His wife, Imo, who confirmed this to newsmen,
said they went to Ukanafun for Easter service. She said prior to the church’s service they decided
to check on some pigs in the farm. While she and the children were in the house, she
heard gunshots. When she tried to find where the sound of the
gunfire emanated, she saw four masked men
walking away from the compound. The Akwa Ibom Police Public Relations Officer,
DSP Chukwu Ikechukwu, also confirmed the
incident. Okechukwu said four gunmen shot the late
council secretary in the stomach. He added that he died on the way to hospital. “The man was in his farm in Ukanafun LGA when
four unidentified gunmen shot him,” he said.
