Commissioner’s killers die in gun battle

Governor Theodore Orji of Abia said those who killed the State’s Commissioner for Agriculture, Dr. Kenneth Nwosu, had also been killed by security operatives in a gun battle near Ikwuano.
Orji made this known at the funeral service for the late Nwosu held at St. Peter’s Anglican Church, Amizi-Olokoro, on Friday.
“Nwosu was shot by kidnappers. He was shot twice for resisting an attempt to kidnap him.
“They shot him in the thigh and later in his abdomen when he resisted attempts by the kidnappers to bundle him into their car,” he said.
