BREAKING: Senatorial Candidate Shot Dead By His Own NSCDC Security Aide

The candidate of Action Alliance (AA’s) in the Imo North Senatorial District of 2019, Mr Ndubuisi Emenike, has been shot dead by an operative of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).

This development has been confirmed by the Imo state Police command on Sunday, January 26, 2020.

Commenting on the developing issue, police spokesman, Orlando Ikeokwu told journalists that Mr Emenike was shot dead by the NSCDC official during a celebration party held in honour of APC’s Miriam Onuoha the winner of the Okigwe North Federal Constituency.

The said NSCDC operative is said to have been attached to the AA Senatorial candidate and had escorted him to the victory party.

Witnesses say NSCDC official was shooting consistently into the air and mistakenly shot his boss, disrupting the party which was already underway.

Mr Emenikr fell and lost consciousness and was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital.

The police said the NSCDC official is presently in custody even as the command has launched an investigation into the ugly incident.

The death of Ndubuisi Emenike is coming few weeks after the death of Senator Ben Uwajimogu who also contested and won the Imo North senatorial district election in 2019.
