APC Calls For Speedy Action Against Killers Of Imo LG Chairman
The Imo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress [APC] has called on the Inspector General of police, Mr. Ibrahim Kpotum Idris, to expedite action against the killers of APC Ideato North Local Government chairman, Mr. Sunny Ejiagwu.
The state chairman, Mr. Daniel Nwafor made the call when the news broke that unknown gunmen assassinated the Ideato North Local Government Area chairman, Mr. Ejiagwu.
Briefing newsmen at the state party secretariat, Mr. Nwafor, said that the killing was condemnable.
He said that political killings and violence has no place in a democracy.
“The killing is condemnable because APC preaches peace and political tolerance. People should practice politics without bitterness and violence.
“The constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria guarantees freedom of association.
“We, therefore, call on the Inspector General of police to press on the commissioner of police to nab the culprits.
“Imo is a peaceful state and an example of how politics should be played.
“The deceased was in our meeting on Thursday and he expressed concern about political violence in his area.
“He told us that his area is volatile and called on us to come to his rescue when the need arises.
“From the information made available to me, he was double-crossed and when he tried to move back he fell into the gutter.
“His killers went there and shot him severely,” Nwafor said.
