The incident reportedly occurred while Lennard was voting in the governorship and state House of Assembly elections at Ibagwa polling unit 2 ward 10 in Ahoada West LGA.

The gunmen, who were wearing police uniforms, had attempted to steal election materials, but Lennard had intervened, leading to his abduction in a swift manner. The State APC Publicity Secretary, Darlington Nwauju, confirmed the tragic incident to the press.

Nwauju stated, “He was abducted from his polling unit during the voting process and taken away. Nobody knew where they took him to. It was later in the evening of Saturday that his body was discovered.

“He was APC LGA caretaker chairman and was a PhD student at the Rivers State University.”

Lennard’s lifeless body was discovered on the Ibueahi-Ubeta road in Ahoada-West LGA of Rivers State, with multiple gunshot wounds and surrounded by a pool of his own blood.
