Soludo reacts to murder of Lawmaker, places N10 million bounty on killers

Prof Chukwuma Soludo, the governor of Anambra State, has announced a N10 million prize to anyone who can provide useful information that would help the state find the killers of Hon Okechukwu Okoye.

Okoye, often known as Okey di Okay, was the state House of Assembly representative for the Aguata II Constituency. Last Sunday, at 1730 hours, he was kidnapped by gunmen.

On Saturday night, reports surfaced that he had been slain by his kidnappers. According to reports, he was beheaded and his skull was dumped in a parking lot.

In a statement published by his press secretary, Christian Aburime, on Saturday night, the governor condemned the despicable conduct and promised to track down the perpetrators.

“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.

“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 hell for these criminals, Gov. Soludo assured.

“Governor Soludo 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,” the statement reads.
