The Labour Party governorship candidate in Imo State, Senator Athan Nneji Achonu, has condemned the killing of eight security personnel, including soldiers, police officers, and members of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps in Imo.
Gists Villa had earlier reported that the tragedy, which occurred on Tuesday morning in Umualumaku village, Ehime Mbano Local Government locals, has caused concern in the community.
Achonu, in a statement, said he received with shock the news of the despicable murder of eight security operatives in Ehime Mbano Local Government Area of Imo State on Tuesday.
He said the unconscionable murder of innocent security operatives in the line of duty is reprehensible, highly condemnable, and unacceptable in a modern society like ours.
The statement reads, “The latest onslaught in the recurrent sparks of violence is more condemnable because it happened in my constituency.
