Soludo condemns murder of Kinsman Anambra lawmaker
- Places N10M bounty on useful info on killers
- Anambra will win against the forces of darkness
The Governor of Anambra state, Prof Chukwuma Charles Soludo has condemned the gruesome murder of a lawmaker in the state, Okechukwu Okoye by yet to be identified persons vowing that Anambra would win against the forces of darkness.
Okoye was abducted last week Sunday by gunmen who forcefully took him from his black Sienna car to an unknown destination.
The head of the lawmaker was however seen today along Nnobi road without the body, as confirmed by the state Police Command. He was said to have been murdered alongside his aide, Cyril Chiegboka.
In a statement by the Governor’s media aide, Christian Aburime, Soludo said he received the news of Okoye’s death with a rude shock and sadness.
“Gov Soludo condoles with his kinsmen of Isuofia, noting that it is probably the same criminal gang that attacked him and killed three policemen at Isuofia two years ago that are once again on the prowl. But they can never cow down Isuofia and Anambra state.
“Governor Soludo, still in shock over the barbaric acts against his two kinsmen, vowed that the perpetrators as well as all criminals operating in Anambra must be decisively brought to book.
“Governor Soludo has consequently placed a N10 million reward for anyone or group that will avail valuable information that will lead to the immediate arrest of the perpetrators of this dastardly act. Anambra will soon be a hell for these criminals, Gov Soludo assured.
“Governor Soludo wishes to reassure Ndi Anambra of government’s resolve and renewed determination with the security agencies to go all out against the criminals and ensure they are brought to justice. “Anambra will win against the forces of darkness”, Gov Soludo assured, urging Ndi Anambra to brace up for the all out war against the criminals,” the statement said.
