Police in Ebonyi State, Nigeria, have confirmed the killing of the owner of Galaxy Hotel – Ogbonnaya Nwadibia.

Nwadibia was killed alongside two others in Isu, a community in Onicha Local Government Area of the state.

Spokesperson for the police in the state, Chris Anyanwu, made the confirmation Sunday in an interview with newsmen in Abakaliki.

He said that although the state police command was aware of the incident, it had yet to get full details of it.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that some yet-to-be identified gunmen attacked the hotel on Thursday night.

A resident of the area, Igwe Nwokorie, told NAN that the gunmen came on a motorbike.

”They came with arms and entered into the hotel, and then we started hearing gunshots from there,” he said. “Three persons including the owner of the hotel were found dead after the attack.”
