Suspected assasins on Saturday in Amaigbo, Nwangele Local Government Area of Imo State killed Theo Mbakwe, aka, “Chiboy”, the first son of late Chief T.T.C. Mbakwe – first indigenous paint manufacturer in Nigeriaon.

Eye witness said that the gunmen after carrying out their dastard act abducted a lady believed to be the girlfriend of the deceased.

A chieftain in the community, Ebubeagu Ekenulo, told the Punch that the suspects fled with a girl in the victim’s vehicle, describing the killing as a shock to the community.

He said, “Chiboy Theo Mbakwe, the first son of the late Chief T.T.C. Mbakwe – first indigenous paint manufacturer in Nigeria – was shot dead in front of their palatial country home in Amaigbo, Nwangele LGA, Imo State by suspected kidnappers, who made away with a yet-to-be-identified female in front of his car.”

Another eyewitness told the newspaper that the fleeing killers did not tamper with the victim’s car and only dragged his female friend into the car before they sped off.

The Imo State Police Public Relations Officer, Andrew Enwerem, confirmed the incident and said the Commissioner of Police, Dasuki Galadanchi, has ordered immediate investigation.

Enwerem said, “From preliminary investigation, it is presumed to be a murder case. They are suspected assassins.

“The CP has intervened and immediately activated the heads of the tactical units of the command to apprehend the fleeing killers. They can only run, but the long arm of the law will catch up with them.”
