Soludo places N10 million bounty on killers of Anambra lawmaker

Anambra State Governor Prof Chukwuma Soludo has promised a N10 million reward on anybody that would provide useful information that would help the state to track down the killers of Hon Okechukwu Okoye.

Okoye, popularly known as Okey di Okay, was the representative of Aguata II Constituency in the state House of Assembly. He was abducted last Sunday by gunmen at about 1730 hours.

Stories filtered in on Saturday night that he had been murdered by his abductors. Reports indicated that he was beheaded and that his head was dropped in a motor park.

Reacting to the ugly development, the governor, in a statement on Saturday night issued by his press secretary, Christian Aburime, condemned the dastardly act, vowing to track down the murderers.

“Prof Chukwuma Charles Soludo; CFR, has received with shock and deep sadness the news of the gruesome murder of Hon Okechukwu Okoye, member representing Aguata II Constituency at the State House of Assembly and his aide, Cyril Chiegboka. Both Hon Okoye and Cyril Chiegboka were kidnapped on the road by the heartless and barbaric murderers on 15th May.

“Gov Soludo condoles with his kinsmen of Isuofia, noting that it is probably the same criminal gang that attacked him and killed three policemen at Isuofia two years ago that are once again on the prowl. But they can never cow down Isuofia and Anambra State.


“Governor Soludo, still in shock over the barbaric acts against his two kinsmen, vowed that the perpetrators, as well as all criminals operating in Anambra, must be decisively brought to book.

“Governor Soludo has consequently placed a N10 million reward for anyone or group that will avail valuable information that will lead to the immediate arrest of the perpetrators of this dastardly act. Anambra will soon be hell for these criminals, Gov. Soludo assured.

“Governor Soludo wishes to reassure Ndi Anambra of the government’s resolve and renewed determination with the security agencies to go all out against the criminals and ensure they are brought to justice.

“Anambra will win against the forces of darkness,” the statement reads.
