Governor Chukwuma Charles Soludo condemns in strong terms, the abduction of the member representing Aguata Constituency Two at the State House of Assembly, Hon. Okechukwu Okoye.
The Governor also condemns the abduction of Hon. Okoye’s Campaign Director, Mr. Cyril Chiegboka. They were both abducted on May 15, 2022. The Governor therefore asks for their immediate release.
Governor Soludo also condemns the spate of insecurity across the State in recent times where innocent citizens have been attacked or killed, happening at a period when his government is already reaching out to critical stakeholders for the restoration of peace and security to the State.
The Governor restates that the current spike in cases of kidnapping and killing of innocent citizens undermines the sanctity of human lives and no one or group has the right to take human life with such gross impunity.
Governor Soludo therefore sympathises with families of those who have directly or indirectly lost their loved ones and re-assures that the government is doing everything possible with the security agencies to restore peace and security to the State in accordance with the law.
