Soludo Condemns Killings In Anambra, Vows To Arrest Culprits

Anambra State Governor, Chukwuma Soludo, has denounced recent killings in the state on Tuesday.

The governor was reacting to murders in Okpuno, Awka South Local Government Area, and Obosi, Idemili North Local Government Area.

According to NAN, four teenagers named Onyiebo Okoye, Kenechukwu Okeke, Jude Ebenezar, and Obinna Maduka were killed in the Okpuno neighborhood on January 1.

On January 2, Chief Ike Okolo, the president general of Obosi town, was shot and killed at a gas station.

The murders, according to Soludo, were connected to a cult, and he promised that those responsible would be caught and brought before the police.

Even if the criminals have fled the city, they will be caught and severely punished, according to Mr. Christian Aburime, the Governor’s press secretary.

He said that thanks to a new traffic management system implemented by the government, Anambra Youth Volunteers, and the Anambra State Traffic Management Agency, Anambra celebrated the finest Christmas in decades.

“The governor has condemned the cult-related war among rival groups and subsequent killings in Obosi and Okpuno in Idemili North and Awka South Council Areas.

“He assures that the perpetrators will be apprehended and decisively dealt with, even if they have run out of town. He stressed that they will be hunted down to face the full wrath of the law.

“The governor further reassured that the cult gangs will surely be tracked down and dealt with decisively in accordance with the law,” he said.

Soludo called on the state residents to go about their normal duties and enjoy the season as the challenges were isolated cases which would be nipped in the bud soon.
