“I condemn in totality the odious and dastardly acts and extend my heartfelt commiseration to the families of the victims.”
The Chairman, Senate Committee on Cooperation and Integration in Africa, Senator Chimaroke Nnamani, says Nnamani, who is representing Enugu East Senatorial District in the National Assembly, stated this while reacting to the recent spate of killings in Igboland, the latest being in his own constituency.
Nnamani, in a statement issued on Sunday, noted with concern, the recent murder of Rev. Fr. Paul Offu and a pregnant woman, Regina Mba, saying: “I condemn in totality the odious and dastardly acts and extend my heartfelt commiseration to the families of the victims.”
He commended the Governor of Enugu State, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, for holding emergency security meetings, and having consultations with traditional rulers, leaders of autonomous communities and other relevant groups and stakeholders regarding insecurity.
“I also have full confidence in the government and people of Enugu State and all relevant groups within the system that this too shall pass,” the statement added.
