AKU General Assembly has urged the police in Enugu State to make public, the suspected killers of the Deputy Director of School of Nursing at the Federal Neuropsychiatric Hospital Enugu, FNHE, Dr Maria Amadi who was assassinated in front of her house on March 21, 2019.
The town union in its meeting, where the group addressed a press conference on the matter, accused the police of handling the matter with kids gloves. They alleged that two prime suspects had been arrested by the police, lamenting that the police refused to make any pronouncement on the progress of the investigation into the gruesome murder. President General of Aku General Assembly, Chief Fidelis Ezeoyili said, “We are worried that the police are yet to unveil the suspected persons and we are going to pursue this matter to a logical conclusion because, within two years, four persons from Aku have been assassinated in Enugu. Some arrests have been made and they are chatting with the police and that’s why we are asking the police to do the needful and very fast.”
I won’t be a cog in the wheel of state’s progress, says Sen. Ayogu Eze The union which comprises the kinsmen of the deceased commended Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State for placing N5 million reward for anyone with useful information on lead to the suspected killers. It also commended the National Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives, as well as the Joint Health Sector Union and the Association of Resident Doctors for protesting to the Government House Enugu to seek government’s intervention in unveiling the killers and their collaborators.
“We urgently demand quick actions by the Nigerian police and other relevant security agencies. They must not leave any stone unturned in their quest to urgently and professionally uncover the circumstances surrounding the heinous act and bring the masterminds to book.
