News Mail Nigeria reports that Dr Uzor Anwuka a medical doctor was shot on the left leg by political thugs who allegedly attacked Senator Rochas Okorocha at his wife’s Royal Spring Palm Hotel which was sealed by the Imo State government.
Dr. Anwuka told newsmen who came with Rochas Okorocha to visit him in the hospital, that he has been in the hospital for six days and undergone three failed surgeries.
Anwuka said : “On the day of the incident my father-in-law called me that he was in Owerri to see his seized property and I drove down their to see him.
“On getting there, I saw a crowd of thugs. They had guns, cutlasses and other dangerous weapons, they started harassing everyone including my father-in-law (Okorocha).
“It was when they were asked to round us up that they started shooting. I made to climb the fence but I was hit by bullet and I fell into the bush and I was there for several hours before I was rescued and brought to the hospital.
“I have been in this hospital for six days and my leg have been operated three times but it is not getting better. So I will be going out to get a better treatment”.
The Senator representing Imo West alleged that the attack was an assasination attempt but thanked God that his son-in-law is alive.
“What I am concerned now is about his life, I thank God that he is alive but the report I am getting from the hospital is not quite pleasing regarding the three surgeries so far conducted since his arrival and we are hoping that he should be flown out of the country immediately for further examination.
” It is really sad, this is an assasination attempt, but I thank God he is alive. We’ve concluded arrangements with the hospital to move him out because they are suggesting that he may need some transplant, to cut some part, but we are hoping it will get better”.
