Gunmen attack Imo lawmaker’s aide, steal valuables

Three gunmen believed to be armed robbers have invaded the Owerri residence of the media aide to Senator Benjamin Uwajumogu, representing Imo North, Emeka Ahaneku.

The attack came a few days after he returned to the state capital from Abuja to see his family.

Speaking to our correspondent on Friday, the lawmaker’s aide said that the gunmen gained access into his apartment after breaking through one of the windows in the early hours of Friday.

According to him, the gunmen, who he said were not masked, having gained access to his house ordered him, his wife and children to lie on their stomachs, while they ransacked his rooms, and carted away valuables.

He said that his properties, his work gadgets, including his phones and computers were made away with by the thieves.

However, Ahaneku said that himself and members of his family were not harmed, but decried the number of documents the robbers took away.

Asked if the robbery had political undertone, the All Progressives Congress member said that he could not speak on that, saying he had no political scores to settle with anybody.
