Gunmen in the early hours of Friday kidnapped the Sole Administrator of the Ideato North Local Government Area of Imo State, Chris Ohizu, and two others.
This was after his country home in the Imoko community in Arondizuogu was razed by his attackers.
A source revealed that the council boss was shot before he was whisked away with two others by their attackers.
The source said, “The Sole Administrator of Ideato North was kidnapped last night together with two others after burning his house at Imoko community in Arondizuogu. They shot him on the leg before taking him away. This is a man who came back from a hospital recently. I am devastated now.”
Police authorities are yet to confirm the latest development.
