Gunmen on Wednesday attacked the home of the chairman of Ikwo Local Government Area, Steve Orogwu in Akwa Ibom State.

The state governor in a statement by his Special Assistant Francis Nwaze condemned the attack, describing it as an act of “inhumanity.”

He decried the situation where the home of the Chairman was set ablaze and some of his relatives killed by the hoodlums, referring to it as vicious and barbaric.

“We received the disturbing news of the attack in the home of the Chairman of Ikwo Local Government Area by unknown gunmen, the attack is unwholesome and inhuman, it is vicious and barbaric.”

Governor Udom called on security agencies to expedite action and unravel the perpetrators of the dastardly act to enable them to face justice.

“I call on the Security Agencies to speedily hunt for and arrest the perpetrators to bring them to justice.”

The Governor commiserated with the Chairman of the Council Area, Hon. Steve Orogwu and all those who lost their loved ones in the senseless attack. He appealed to them to be consoled and remain calm as Government works hard to track the culprits.
