Governor Charles Soludo of Anambra State is very angry and has vowed to go tough on criminals operating in the state.
In a statement by Soludo’s Chief Press Secretary, Christian Aburime said:
“Prof Chukwuma Charles Soludo; CFR, has received with shock and deep sadness the news of the gruesome murder of Hon. Okechukwu Okoye, member representing Aguata II Constituency at the State House of Assembly and his aide, Cyril Chiegboka.”
“Both Hon Okoye and Cyril Chiegboka were kidnapped on the road by the heartless and barbaric murderers on 15th May.”
“Governor Soludo condoles with his kinsmen of Isuofia. 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 has 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.”
