The family of a slain secretary of the All Progressives Grand Alliance in Oroma Etiti, Anambra West Local Government Area, late Chukwudi Chinwuba, has petitioned the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Garba Umar.

They alleged that a herbalist and four others (names withheld) were among those who murdered the politician.

Briefing newsmen on Sunday in Onitsha on behalf of the family, brother to the deceased, Chinwuba Chinenye, urged the Police commissioner to arrest and prosecute those involved.

He said the late politician was the president-general of the community.
Chinwuba was allegedly killed on November 15, but his remains were discovered on the River Niger some days later.

Chinenye said, “I write to bring to your knowledge the deliberate killing of my elder brother, Mr. Chukwudi Julius Chinwuba, in broad day light, at about 1200hours-1300hours on 15th November 2017 at Umunzu clan, Oroma Etiti Anam, in front of the house of a native doctor who is one of the five key conspirators and participants in the murder, using a machete.

“On behalf of our entire family, I humbly seek your urgent action towards apprehending my brother’s killers and all those who conspired to carry out the act. Let justice be done sir, to serve as a lesson to others.”

He said the contest for the post of the President General as well as the secretary of the All Progressives Grand Alliance in the area, which was won by his slain brother against those he described as ‘almighty politicians’, triggered envy which eventually led to his murder.

The petition read in part, “My late brother won the election and the Anambra State Government duly issued him a certificate as the PG and immediately after the election, some hired thugs went and started destroying some of his properties in the village.

“My brother then decided to temporarily relocate out of the village to the nearby Umuikwu Anam for safety.

“Unfortunately the elders made efforts to invite him to a peace talk and reconciliation meeting with aggrieved parties over his victory as the PG and scribe of APGA.

“My brother went to answer the call, not knowing that the named native doctor and other four key players in the dastardly murder were lying in wait for him.

“They pounced on him at first sight and started beating him severely with machete, tied him up, took him away and threw him into River Niger,” Chinenye alleged.

When contacted on the telephone, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Nkeiruka Nwode, said the Command was investigating the matter, and that she would not dwell much on the issue for now.
