Yet-to-be-identified gunmen have killed and set ablaze two persons in Imo State Polytechnic, Uwuagwo, in Ohaji/Egbema Local Government  Area of the state (formerly, Michael  Okpara  College  of Agriculture).

The incident reportedly happened in the early hours of Wednesday at a students’ hostel in Mgbirichi, an adjoining town to the campus.

Some hoodlums were said to have attacked and killed Onumajuru Chibueze and his visiting friend, Chris Ukpabi, at the Infinity Hostel.

Onumajuru reportedly worked at the institution’s School of Environmental Sciences as a typist, while Ukpabi has recently graduated from the Department of Office, Technology and Management.

Reacting to the incident, the Public Relations Officer of the Polytechnic, Mr. Darlington Oparaocha, said the double murder happened outside the campus.
