UGM k#ll intending couple, groom’s brother one week before traditional wedding in Imo – Instablog9ja

Unknown g¥nmen have reportedly k#lled a couple who were travelling home for their traditional wedding in Imo State.

The couple, identified as Ezemezie Ifechukwu Martins and Mba Ifeoma Gloria, were said to have been k#lled on Tuesday night, January 10, at Ndiejezie Izuogu in Ideato north LGA of the state.

It was gathered that the couple was k#lled just eight days to their traditional wedding slated for Wednesday, January 18, 2023.

TheCable reports that the younger brother to the groom was also m¥rdered during the [email protected]

According to a source, the [email protected] are notorious for snatching cars in the area, adding that vehicle owners who refuse to surrender to them are k#lled in the process.

“We are no longer safe in Arondizogu. Students are afraid of going to school. Our mothers are no longer going to the market for fear of the unknown. As we speak, there is mass exodus of people from Arondizogu this morning after the incident last night.

I complained of these reckless [email protected] and k#llings and b¥rning of vehicles in Arondizogu last year, and the Imo state PPRO assured me that something was already done about it.

But since then, the [email protected] and k#llings have been everyday affair. Our people living abroad did not come back for Christmas and New Year celebrations. The few that came back could not move around in their cars. It’s an unfortunate situation.

We call on the government of Imo state to come to our rescue and send the military to take over the area to forestall further k#llings,” the source said.
