Unknown gunmen shoot Gov Emmanuel’s aide

Unidentified gunmen opened fire at Mr Emmanuel Owuala, Special Assistant on Talent Hunt to Akwa Ibom State Governor Udom Emmanuel.

Details of the attack are sketchy as of this writing but the media personality – who in June survived a road accident along Calabar-Itu highway – reported the incident in a Facebook video on Saturday 2 October 2021.

In the video, you can see him wrapped in bandages and surrounded by people including some police officers.

“They did this to me. They think they have won, they think they will go scot-free” said the governor’s aide who’s also known as Emma Solution. “I’ll fight back.”

He added: “This is a shot. Thank God the officers are here. They are going to get the culprits.”

The attack comes a few days after unknown gunmen assassinated Dr Chike Akunyili, the widower of the late former minister of Information and director-general of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), Prof Dora Akunyili.
