Four unidentified gunmen have killed Ime Atakpa, the newly sworn-in secretary of Ukanafun local government area of Akwa Ibom.

Atakpa was shot when he was on his farm in his backyard at Ukanafun on Sunday.

His wife, Imo, who disclosed this to journalists, said they went to Ukanafun for Easter service.

She said, prior to the church’s service, they decided to check on some pigs on the farm.

While she and the children were in the house, she heard gunshots.

When she tried to find where the sound of the gunfire emanated, she saw four masked men walking away from the compound.

The Akwa Ibom police spokesperson, Chukwu Ikechukwu, confirmed the incident.

Okechukwu said four gunmen shot the late council secretary in the stomach.

He added that he died on the way to the hospital.

“The man was in his farm in Ukanafun LGA when four unidentified gunmen shot him,” he said.
