The Governor of Anambra State, Chukwuma Charles Soludo, has condemned in very strong terms yesterday’s murder of three operatives of Anambra State Vigilance Group, who were on official duty at Nkwo, Igboukwu, Aguata Local Council.
The victims were identified as Okeke Emeka, Nnayelu Orizu, and Chukwuma Ubaego.
While condemning the dastardly killings, the governor in a statement by his Press Secretary, Christian Aburime, reiterated that those responsible for the killing of the three men would be fished out to face justice.

‘This particular act of killing is inhuman and totally unacceptable. The perpetrators will surely not go scot-free, as we are fully determined to fish them out to pay dearly for their crimes,” Soludo reassured.
He reassured that those who attacked Senator Ifeanyi Ubah’s convoy and some military personnel would equally be apprehended to face the full wrath of the law.
Soludo went on to commiserate with their families and Igboukwu community.
The Eastern Updates had earlier reported that Soludo has announced fresh levies of up to N100,000 on bereaved families who may want to paste obituary posters in any part of the state.
A memo issued through the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Anambra State Signage and Advertisment Agency, Mr. Odili Ujubuon͂u which was made available to The Eastern Updates disclosed that the levies must be paid by anybody or family that wants to publicise an obituary, wedding or other events in the state.
In the letter entitled ‘Regulation of ceremonial adverts,’ addressed to the National President of the Anambra State Association of Town Unions (ASATU), Soludo warned that the new directives must be adhered to.
