The serene and peaceful Umuomumu, Mbieri community in Mbaitoli LGA of Imo State seems to be presently on fire, following the gruesome murder of a youth by a security aide attached to the community’s traditional ruler HRH, Eze Peter Opara.
According to our source, the traditional ruler had some misunderstanding with the youths and in the ensuring stampede, one of his security aides gunned down one Junior Opara, an energetic youth from the area, said to be very active in the social media circle.
The member representing Mbaitoli state constituency in the Imo house of assembly Hon. Nnataraonye Ifeanyi is said to have visited the scene of the incident and assured that circumstances surrounding the incident will be unraveled and that justice takes its full course.
The youths of the community are still fuming after setting the monarch’s palace ablaze, over the unfortunate incident.
