The police command in Imo has called for calm following the alleged killing of Ignatius Asor, the ruler of the Ubudi Agwa community, Oguta local government area, and three others by gunmen.

This is contained in a statement by the command’s spokesman, Mike Abatam, on Tuesday in Owerri.

On Monday, gunmen invaded the Obudi Agwa community and killed four persons, including Mr Asor.

“Preliminary investigation reveals that hoodlums came in four vehicles and two motorcycles in the company of a woman. They also killed three other persons, including a member of a local vigilance group in the area,” stated the police. “The gunmen disguised themselves as persons in distress pretending to report an emergency situation to the traditional ruler.”

He assured the community and the general public that the investigation had begun and the command would leave no stone unturned until the perpetrators were arrested and made to face the full wrath of the law.

”The police seek the support of members of the community to provide credible information or report any clandestine activities in their communities,” stated the police’s spokesman.

President Muhammadu Buhari directed security agencies in the state to investigate the dastardly act and ensure that the perpetrators face the full wrath of the law.
