The Governor of Anambra State, Charles Soludo on Saturday evening condemned the killing of the lawmaker, lawmaker representing Aguata II Constituency at the state House of Assembly, Okechukwu Okoye.

Unknown gunmen had abducted the lawmaker last Sunday alongside his aide, Cyril Chiegboka while returning from a function.

The lawmaker was, however, beheaded by gunmen and his head was placed at a motor park in Nnobi, Idemili South Local Government Area of the state.

Soludo wondered if the lawmaker was killed by the same people that attacked him and killed three policemen at Isuofia two years ago.

The former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria in his reaction to the incident placed an N10 million reward for anyone or group that will avail valuable information that will lead to the immediate arrest of the perpetrators of the dastardly act.

The statement read in part, “Anambra will win against the forces of darkness. Ndi Anambra should brace up for the all-out war against the criminals.

“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.

“The governor is still in shock over the barbaric acts against his two kinsmen, vowing that the perpetrators, as well as all criminals operating in Anambra, must be decisively brought to book.

“Governor Soludo has consequently placed N10m 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 hell for these criminals.

“He wishes to reassure Ndi Anambra of the 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. Ndi Anambra should brace up for the all-out war against the criminals.”
