The Anambra State Governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, has condemned the killing of three members of the Anambra State Vigilante Group, who were on official duty at Nkwo, Igboukwu, Aguata Local Government Area of the state.
In a statement made available to journalists in Awka on Friday, Soludo’s Press Secretary, Christian Aburime, gave the names of the victims as Okeke Emeka, Nnayelu Orizu, and Chukwuma Ubaego.
The victims were killed when some yet-to-be-identified assailants opened fire on them on Wednesday.
While condemning the dastardly killings, Soludo reiterated that those responsible for the killing of the three vigilante operatives will be fished out.
The governor also reassured that the government was on the trail of those who attacked Senator Ifeanyi Ubah’s convoy, where some of his orderlies and security details were killed and would soon be brought to face the full wrath of the law.
He, therefore, commiserated with the families of the deceased and Igboukwu Community, assuring that the death of the vigilante operatives will not be in vain.
“This particular act of killing is inhuman and totally unacceptable. The perpetrators will surely not go scot-free as we are fully determined to fish them out to pay dearly for their crimes,” he stressed.
