Anambra State Governor, Prof. Chukuwma Charles Soludo has reacted to the gruesome murder of a lawmaker, Hon Okechukwu Okoye who was said to have been kidnapped and was subsequently beheaded saying Anambra will win against all forces of Darkness as he pledged N10 million to anyone who provides useful information that will lead to the arrest of the member of the state House of Assembly and his aide.


Soludo yesterday received with shock and deep sadness the news of the gruesome murder of Hon. Okechukwu Okoye, a member representing Aguata II Constituency at the State House of Assembly and his aide, Cyril Chiegboka.


Both Okoye and Chiegboka were kidnapped on the road by the heartless and barbaric murderers on May 15.
The head of Okoye was yesterday found at Nnobi in Idemili South Local Government Area of Anambra State.
His body was not there and indications were that the killers removed the body.


Okoye and his aide were kidnapped at Aguata by gunmen who abandoned his Toyota Sienna car.
The police later recovered the car and said that they had deployed operatives to rescue the lawmaker.


In a statement issued last night, Soludo condoled with his kinsmen of Isuofia, noting that it was probably the same criminal gang that attacked him and killed three policemen at Isuofia two years ago that was on the prowl.
The governor vowed that they can never cow Isuofia and Anambra State.


Soludo vowed that the perpetrators as well as all criminals operating in Anambra must be decisively brought to book.
