GRAPHIC DETAILS: How Gunmen attacked Ohakim’s convoy, killed four policemen



Fleeing gunmen on Monday attacked a convoy of a former governor of Imo State, Ikedi Ohakim, and killed four of his police orderlies in the process. 

Ohakim’s convoy was attacked at Oriagu in the Ehime Mbano Local Government Area of the state on Monday evening.

Ohakim who escaped by the whiskers had his backup vehicle bombed, leading to the death of the four policemen in his convoy.

Ohakim was with two of his children and was returning from a visit when the gunmen struck.

A source close to the ex-governor disclosed that it took the bravery of the driver of Ohakim for him to escape.

The source said, “his excellency was the main target but his driver was smart enough to beat them because they were driving to block him. 

“Disappointed that their main target had escaped, they blocked his backup vehicle and burnt it. The four policemen with him burnt.”

Former governor of Imo state, Ikedi Ohakim, has revealed his attackers. He said they are not members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

Ohakin, while narrating his ordeal on Tuesday morning, said: “This goes beyond the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, I must say. These are professionals, well-trained. They are not ordinary people. They were driving a blue colour BMW 5-series car, brand new. They came to kill me.

“I don’t know what this is all about. It is becoming terrible. Won’t people come home again? Are we going to stay in Owerri and Abuja permanently without coming back to our communities?” the former governor mourned”.

Ohakin and his two children escaped death by the special grace of God and the bulletproof vehicle they were into.

IPOB has been accused of several crimes in the south-east region. They have been accused of killing, kidnapping and raping women in the region.
