A personal Security Aide attached to Imo billionaire philanthropist, Chief Ndubuisi Emenike, popularly known as Ototonwa has accidentally shot him dead.
Bittertruth Media gathered that the sad incident happened on Sunday around 5pm during a victory party for the All Progressives Congress candidate at the rerun election in Okigwe North Federal Constituency held on Saturday.
The tragedy struck at the APC’s candidate house at Umunachi in the Isiala Mbano Local Government Area of the state.
His security aide who is an operative of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps had escorted Ototonwa to the victory party and was shooting consistently into the air when he mistakenly shot his boss which brought the victory party to an abrupt end.
