Nwonu, who is resident in the area, confirmed the killing, saying, “The All Progressives Congress, APC, Ezza North Local Government Area has received with shock, the sad news of the gruesome murder of the Commander of Ebubeagu Security Outfit, Ezza North Local Government Area, Mr Magnus Iganga, by yet-to-be-identified gunmen in the early hours of today.
