Anambra State Governor Charles Soludo has expressed sadness over the murder of a member of the state House of Assembly Okechukwu Okoye.
Okoye was abducted alongside his aide Cyril Chiegboka on May 15 along Aguluzigbo road, Anaocha Local Government Area of the state.
The heads of Okoye and Chiegboka were discovered around Chisco park junction in Amichi, Nnewi South Local Government Area on Saturday.
Soludo condemned the killings and vowed to ensure that the perpetrators were brought to book.
He promised N10 million reward for any person or group who would give credible information that could lead to the arrest of the murderers.
According to a statement by his chief press secretary Christian Aburime, “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 Community and Anambra State.
“Gov. 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.
“The Governor 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.”
Soludo said his administration would make Anambra uncomfortable for criminal elements in no distant time.
He assured citizens and residents of 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.
