The traditional ruler of Obosi community in Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra State, Igwe Chidubem Iweka III, has revealed that he and the community know the identities of the killers of their town union leader.
PUNCH Metro had earlier reported the gruesome murder of the President-General of the community, Ike Okolo.
The monarch while speaking with newsmen in his palace said himself, as well as his cabinet members and other law-abiding indigenes of the community, knew that it was the same notorious cultists that assassinated the President-General of Obosi town union, Ikechukwu Okolo, in cold blood on January 2, which created tension in the area throughout for two days.
He maintained that the activities of the cultists have become too inexplicable that the law-abiding indigenes of Obosi no longer sleep with their two eyes closed, to the extent that they kill and maim people almost on daily basis.
Igwe Iweka said that they have submitted the names of the bandits and the rampaging cultists to law enforcement agencies for arrest, questioning and possibly halting of their nefarious activities in the area.
Speaking further, the monarch appealed to the state governor, Chukwuma Soludo, and heads of security agencies in the state, including the police, DSS, Army, and Navy to come to their rescue before these deadly cultists wipe out the entire citizenry, particularly now that the royal cabinet in conjunction with the town union has submitted the names of the bandits to the enforcement agencies.
However, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Tochukwu Ikenga, told newsmen on Wednesday via SMS that the assassins were yet to be arrested, adding that investigations were still ongoing.
