…Says police must apprehend the killers
Rivers state Governor, Rt. Hon Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi has condemned the killing of the State Chairman of the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP), Julius Nwaofu by unidentified gunmen in Port Harcourt.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. David Iyofor, Amaechi decried the dastardly act calling it “wicked and atrocious at this time in the life of our nation and state.”
While consoling the bereaved family and ANPP members, the governor made it abundantly clear that the police must get to the root of the murder.
He directed that all security agencies in the state must work assiduously to ensure that the perpetrators of the evil crime are caught and brought to book in no distant time.
“As a State government, we will ensure that the security agencies do not relent until the criminals behind this heinous act are captured and face the full wrath of the law,” Amaechi said.
He further urged everyone in the State to remain calm as the government is working closely with law enforcement agents to rid the state of such inhuman and unlawful activities.
