Don’t Let Killers Of Labour Party Chieftain Go Unpunished, Peter Obi Urges Alex Otti

Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi has asked the state Governor Alex Otti,  to ensure that those who killed the party’s chieftain, Zachary Maduka in Abia State don’t go unpunished.

Obi, who stated this while decrying Maduka’s killing, also urged the governor to rid Abia of all forms of criminality to ensure such killers don’t happen again.

Obi stated this on his X (formerly twitter) handle.

A statement by the Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Abia State, Moureen Chinaka, had confirmed that the 70-old chieftain was violently attacked, murdered and beheaded by a yet-to-be identified armed men.

Reacting however, Obi said, “I have been away to Bangladesh for an international engagement only to arrive home this morning, to receive with shock, and pain the very sad and ugly news of the beheading of a Labour Party Chieftain in Abia state, Zachary Maduka.

“I condole his immediate family, Governor Alex Otti,  the good people of Abia, and the Labour Party family.  Such a despicable act remains condemned in all its ramifications. I sincerely appeal to Governor Otti, in line with my avowed commitment to rid Abia of all forms of criminality to ensure that this type of hateful dastardly act does not go unpunished. I am sure the Governor and the government of Abia will be there for the family, and so will all of us the extended family members. May God Almighty grant him eternal rest. – PO”
