Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has expressed sadness over the murder of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Chairman in Ideato-North Local Government Area, Sunny Ejeagwu.
Okorocha, who described the incident as a gruesome case of mindless assassination, pledged N20 million reward for anyone who would give useful information that could lead to the arrest of the killers.
The governor spoke when Political and Community leaders of Ideato-North came to officially inform him of the development on Friday in Owerri.
Okorocha assured that the killers of the man, popularly known as Ohaneze, will soon be apprehended and will be made to face the consequences of their wicked act.
He further directed the Police and other Security agencies in the state to leave no stone unturned in ensuring that those behind the ungodly act are brought to book without delay.
Okorocha said; “This is painful and Ohaneze has no reason to die now. He has just been elected the Chairman of APC, Ideato-North and he is one that is loved by all, but for someone to have gone to take his life, we condemn it in its entirety.”
“I’m here placing a prize tag that whoever can give any useful information as to the killers of Chief Ejeagwu, this government will release the sum of N20m immediately just to make sure we arrest whoever killed this innocent soul,” the governor pledged.
