Fresh details are emerging about the casualties suffered by Governor Hope Uzodinma when his country home was attacked.

Reports emerging revealed that at least three security operatives were killed when unknown gunmen attacked the home of the Imo State governor.

Confirming the casualties hours after the incident, the state police command speaking through its spokesperson, Orlando Ikeokwu, said that a police sergeant and two personnel of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) were the casualties.

He noted that while the gunmen killed one NSCDC operative in the governor’s compound, another NSCDC personnel and a police sergeant were killed by the attackers while escaping from the compound.

According to him, the police sergeant and the NSCDC personnel were killed by the fleeing hoodlums at Mgbidi- Oguta junction.

Ikeokwu also said two cars parked at the governor’s compound in Omuma in the Oru East local government area of the state were burnt during the attack.

He disclosed that the invaders threw petrol bombs inside the governor’s compound.

Ikeokwu said:

“I can confirm the attack on the governor’s house. The hoodlums attacked the governor’s house by throwing in petrol bomb as a result of which two cars were burnt but they were successfully repelled and none of the building was set ablaze.

“However, one unarmed personnel of the NSCDC was killed in the process. The hoodlums while escaping also killed a police sergeant and another NSCDC personnel both in their private vehicles at Mgbidi junction.”
