Gunmen sustain siege in Imo, murder popular businessman 

A businessman, Linus Mmuo, popularly known as ” Sakatan” was early Thursday morning assasinated by gunmen in his village, Umuezikegbu in Egbuoma community, Oguta Local Government Area (LGA) of Imo state.

This is the fourth assassination case in the state in the last few days, following the murder of a People’s Democratic Party (PDP) ward chairman, the murder of a monarch, Eze Joe Ochulor both in Ezinihitte LGA and that of police officers in Ahiazu Mbaise LGA.

According to an eyewitness, Linus Mmuo was dragged out from his house by his assailants after he arrived from a meeting earlier.

They shot him severally until they made sure he had given up the ghost before they left the scene.

When contacted, the Imo Police Command’s spokesman, ASP Henry Okoye, said he had not been briefed on the incident.
