Tension As Gunmen Kill PDP House Of Reps Candidate



Gunmen have killed the 2023 House of Representatives candidate from Anambra State, Jude Oguejiofor.

Oguejiofor hailed from Orsumoghu in Ihiala Local Government Area of Anambra but lived in Nnewi in Nnewi North Local Government Area.

Oguejiofor, a lawyer, contested for the Ihiala Federal Constituency House of Representatives seat in the 2023 general elections under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Sources told DAILY POST that the politician was abducted around 1 am, some days ago, alongside his brother, by some gunmen.

The incident happened in the Orsumoghu Community, where they had gone to see their aged parents.

But the gunmen later released his brother, a medical doctor resident overseas, unhurt.

A source close to the family, who asked not to be named, said that the gunmen accused Oguejiofor of writing petitions against them and their activities in the community.

“They said he had been writing petitions against them to the Anambra State Government,” the source said.

As at the time of filing this report, there was no official reaction from the Anambra State Police command, but a police officer who spoke on condition of anonymity confirmed the development. Daily Post
