~Hon. Prince Nelson John.
The Leader of the Obio/Akpor Legislative Assembly, Hon. Prince Nelson John, on behalf of the 7th OBALGA Legislative Assembly, had described as “a very rude shock”, news of the gruesome murder of the Leader, Ahoada West Legislative Assembly, Hon. Ekele Fineface Chikobi Cohen, popularly known as Efcc Chiko, who was reportedly shot and murdered by unknown gun men, on his way back from a political event.
“The gruesome murder of Hon. EFCC Chiko is a huge loss to Democracy and the Legislative business in Rivers State” he said.
Hon. Nelson John while condemning this very ugly acts of political violence, thuggery and killings in its entirety, called on the Police and other security agencies to “leave no stone unturned, until all those responsible for committing this dastardly act are apprehended and made the face the full weight of the law.”
With a very heavy heart, Mr. Leader prayed for the repose of the soul of his departed colleague and for God to grant his family and loved ones, the fortitude to bear this very painful and irreparable loss.
Until his death, Hon. EFCC Chico was the Leader of Ahoada West Legislative Assembly, a very active member of the Social Media Community in Rivers State and a graduate of Chemical Engineering from Nottingham University, United Kingdom.
May his soul rest in peace.
