Charles Ezekwem-led Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) paid her a sympathy visit.
The delegation of PDP members and faithfuls led by the Secretary of Imo PDP, Hon.

On arrival, the PDP delegation met the family that was very bitter, pained and sad at the murder of their innocent son, with the father, mother, family members and friends crying uncontrollably.

The Imo PDP members also visited hospitalised victims who were shot and are right now receiving urgent treatments at the Intensive Care Units (ICU) of some hospitals in the state after undergoing emergency surgeries. The Imo PDP has taken care of the hospital bills of the victims.
