The south-east governors’ forum has condemned the killing of husband of the late Dora Akunyili, Dr. Chike Akunyili.
Akunyili was killed on Tuesday night at Umuoji, Idemili North LGA of Anambra state.
Reacting to the killing, David Umahi, chairman of the forum, in a statement on Wednesday, expressed worry over “how Ndigbo is now losing most of its finest to hoodlums in the zone”.
Umahi, in the statement by the his spokesman, Francis Nwaze, commiserated with the people of Agulu, the Anambra government, and the entire region on the incident.
He said: “On behalf of the Governors of the South-East, we condemn the act. It is not only barbaric, but it is also unbecoming how much human lives no longer matter in our society,”
“We give security agencies a marching order to go all out to uncover and arrest all the perpetrators of this inhuman act and make them face justice.”
