The Anambra State Government has said it is still shocked by the news of the death of Chief Alexander Edozieuno, a former traditional ruler of the Mkpunando community in Aguleri, Anambra East Local Government Area of the state.
Chief Edozieuno, was the traditional ruler of Mkpunando before he was deposed last year after he visited Aso Rock to see President Muhammadu Buhari in the company of Prince Arthur Eze.
He was killed on Friday, September 10, together with his driver, who was identified as Chukwuemeka, while driving on Ezu Bridge, Otuocha, Anambra East local government area according to reports.
On learning of his death, Anambra State Governor Willie Obiano directed the newly posted Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Tony Olofu, to use all resources available to him to fish out those behind the murder.
In a statement issued by the Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment yesterday, Mr C. Don Adinuba t said: ” It is disheartening that Chief Edozieuno would die this way, when violent crime has been reduced to its lowest level in Anambra State since its creation in August 1991, making Anambra Nigeria’s safest state despite recent organised attacks.
“We regret that there are still elements who have little regard for human life, let alone the dignity of the human person.
“This is in spite of the sustained efforts of the current administration to make our society more caring and more humane.
“We extend the condolences of the people and Government of Anambra State to the Edozieuno family, the Mkpunando community, the friends, relatives and associates of Chief Edozieuno”
