The Anambra State Government has directed security agencies to fish out killers of Chief Alexander Edozieuno, the former traditional ruler of the Mkpunando community in Aguleri, Anambra East Local Government Area.
He was killed together with his driver, simply identified as Chukwuemeka, while driving on Ezu Bridge, Otuocha, Anambra East LGA, according to reports.
According to a statement signed by the State Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Mr C Don’t Adinuba on learning of Chief Edozieuno’s death, Governor Willie Obiano directed the new Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Tony Olofu, to use all resources available to him to fish out those behind the murder noting that,Mr Olofu’s visit to the crime scene and subsequent actions show the seriousness with which he is treating the murder.
The statement said it is disheartening that Chief Edozieuno should die this way when violent crime has been reduced to its lowest level in Anambra State since its creation in August, 1991, making Anambra Nigeria’s safest state despite recent organized attacks regretting that there are still elements who have little regard for human life and dignity of the human person, in spite of the sustained efforts of the current administration to make the society more caring and more humane.
It extended the condolences of the people and Government of Anambra State to the Edozieuno family, the Mkpunando community, the friends
