The Governor of Anambra State, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, has called on the abductors of Mr Okechukwu Okoye, member representing Aguata 2 in the State House of Assembly, to immediately and unconditionally release him.

Gunmen abducted Okoye and his campaign director, Mr Cyril Chiegboka, on Sunday.

The abduction took place barely two days after Soludo held a meeting with detained Leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

In a statement issued by Mr Christian Aburime, his Chief Press Secretary, Soludo condemned the abduction and increasing wave of insecurity in Anambra.

“The governor condemns the spate of insecurity across the state in recent times where innocent citizens have been attacked or killed.

“This is happening at a period when government is already reaching out to critical stakeholders for the restoration of peace and security to the state,’’
Aburime stated.

Soludo noted the spike in kidnapping and killing of innocent citizens and the undermining of the sanctity of lives in the state.

He said no one or group had the right to take human life with impunity, Aburime also stated.

The governor expressed his heartfelt condolences and sympathy with families of those who had lost their loved ones and property directly or indirectly.

“My government is doing everything possible in collaboration with security agencies to restore peace and security to the state in accordance with the law,’’ Soludo was quoted as saying.
