The Labour Party (LP) candidate for Enugu East Senatorial district, Oyibo Chukwu, has been killed. Oyibo, a lawyer, was said to have been attacked while returning from a campaign trip in the Agbani area.
It was gathered that he was burnt inside his vehicle, and three persons were suspected to be with him in the vehicle. However, it could not be confirmed how many of the occupants were killed.
Information about the attack was still very sketchy. But a party source, who pleaded not to be quoted, confirmed the incident.
