Reacting to the killing at the state party secretariat, APC state chairman, Nwafor,
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.”
