Who was Prince Iheme ? Osita Iheme's Brother killed by a gunman

Prince Iheme, brother of actor Osita Iheme, popularly known as Paw Paw, and a policeman have been killed by gunmen enforcing sit-at-home orders in Imo State. Let us see more details about this incident in detail.

Who was Prince Iheme?

Prince Iheme, an elder brother to Nollywood actor Osita Iheme, was also killed during a separate attack in Ubomiri, another community in the council area of the state. The gunmen also attacked, with a machete, the Commissioner for Solid Minerals in the state, Martin Eke, according to a report by The Nation newspaper.

What happened at the Scene-Eyewitness Reported

The commissioner reportedly received a severe sword cut from the attackers. According to an eyewitness, the gunmen randomly opened fire while ordering spectators and drivers to leave so they could watch a sit-at-home protest in Orji, Owerri North council area, where they also ran through a police roadblock and killed one officer.

When they rammed into the police roadblock in Orji, they began firing at the officers, killing one of them. According to the source, some of them yelled, “Go home, today is sit-at-home,” which reportedly caused individuals to run erratically and swerve onto Okigwe Road.

Simon Ekpa’s demand for a five-day stay-at-home protest received a response from IPOB’s director of media and publicity, Emma Powerful.

“I just escaped death by a whisker now. They stopped before us and shot into the sky and asked us to go home. They didn’t shoot at me, maybe because I was in the midst of some elderly women,” another witness said.

The killing of Iheme, the Nollywood actor’s brother

Mr. Iheme, the elder brother to the Nollywood actor, Osita, was killed when the gunmen attacked the convoy of Akarachi Amadi, the All Progressives Congress candidate for Mbaitoli/ Ikeduru Federal Constituency.

Iheme and Eke were being attacked by the shooters when they were inside one of the convoy’s cars. Witnesses claimed that Mr. Eke was hacked with a machete while Mr. Iheme was shot dead by the shooters on the scene.

“Prince Iheme was instantly murdered. The commissioner who took office two weeks ago was severely wounded. He’s just been taken urgently to the hospital. They were traveling in a Ford car, according to one of the unidentified witnesses.

Destruction of the market, vehicles, and other things

In the meantime, some gunmen attacked locals in Urualla, a town in the state’s Ideato North Local Government Area. For the time being, it is unclear if they were the same shooters who killed the police officer and Mr. Iheme, the actor from Nollywood’s older brother.

In addition to attacking the Urualla community’s people, the thugs also destroyed a nearby market. This was revealed by Aloy Ejimakor, Nnamdi Kanu’s special attorney, on Friday in a Twitter post.

The community’s native, Mr. Ejimakor, claimed the gunmen also attacked and vandalized the homes of his family. It’s a day that will live in my memory forever. Using his verified Twitter account, he declared, “I’m offended, and my people are very upset.

In the Twitter post, the attorney included a video of the encounter. The neighborhood market and an SUV parked near the market were on fire in the video PREMIUM TIMES witnessed.

While the fire damaged the items and belongings in their shops, shop owners could be observed standing helplessly. See the stores of humans. In the backdrop of the video, a speaker can be heard saying in Igbo, “All the products in these businesses have been fully torched.

The police spokesperson in the state, Michael Abattam, did not respond to calls and a text message seeking comments from him about the multiple attacks in the state.


Simon Ekpa, a controversial top player activist and the founder of Autopilot IPOB, a subgroup of the IPOB, had called for a five-day sit-in across the southeast of Nigeria from December 9 to 14.

Mr. Ekpa claimed that the sit-at-home order was in response to “proactive measures” taken by unidentified Biafran protestors to address the rising insecurity in the area, which, in his opinion, was brought on by the Nigerian government. He made the declaration on Wednesday via his verified Twitter handle.

Issued a Warning

He issued a five-day warning to the locals telling them to stay indoors . Otherwise they will face the consequences if they ignore the order. Soon after he made his statement, a video clip that showed a gun resting against a tree in a dense forest appeared online.

A voice was heard in the video, which was posted to multiple WhatsApp groups, directing locals to observe the five-day sit-at-home protest. Remain inside your home.
You will die if you leave. I give you my word, the voice warned.

However, a number of Igbo elders criticized the decision and advised locals to disregard it. The declaration was frequently condemned by Mr. Kanu, the leader of IPOB, who urged locals to disregard it.
