African Democratic Congress, ADC, presidential aspirant, Prof. Kingsley Moghalu, has described the activities of unknown gunmen in the Southeast as terrorism, ANAMBRA PEOPLE reports.
Moghalu, who was reacting to the murder of a member of the Anambra State House of Assembly, Okechukwu Okoye, by unknown gunmen, stressed that the Southeast is bleeding.
Gunmen had kidnapped the deceased, who represented Aguata II State constituency in Aguata, a few weeks ago.
But the police discovered Okoye’s head without a body on Saturday.
The lawmaker’s decapitated head was recovered at Nnobi, in Idemili South Local Government area of Anambra state.
Reacting to the incident, Moghalu described Okoye’s murder as a wicked and a condemnable crime.
In a series of tweets, the presidential aspirant wrote: “The gruesome murder of Okechukwu Okoye, a member of the Anambra State House of Assembly and the abduction of his aide Chiegboka are utterly wicked and condemnable crimes.
“The activities of the so-called “Unknown Gunmen” in Southeast Nigeria constitute terrorism. SE is bleeding.
“We must end this reign of terror. It remains the responsibility of @NigeriaGov which is responsible for security, to do so. Life has become so cheap in our country that a more fundamental, political leadership change must happen as soon as possible to restore our human dignity.”
