A group of gunmen reportedly attacked the country home of a retired official of the Department of the Security Services [DSS] and killed his blood sister.
According to a report published by 247Ureports, the house was set on fire and completely burnt.
The gruesome attack occurred in the early hours of Tuesday, February 21, 2023.
The attack was suspected to be politically motivated.
According to the information gathered, the retired DSS official – Chuks Ngwu – who hails from Okigwe in Imo State, retired from the DSS in the year 2018/19 as an Assistant Director General following a successful career at the DSS.
He rose to the level of top boss in charge of the legal department of the DSS national headquarters.
Following his retirement, Chuks Ngwu, who was considered a “big man” in his Okigwe community and well known in his community as a former DSS official – had erected a befitting edifice of a home in his village. It is an impressive complex.
He joined active partisan politics. A source indicates he joined the ruling party in Imo State, the All Progressive Congress [APC] and was actively involved in the day to day political grind towards the buildup to the general elections of March 11 and February 25.
