The Police in Enugu State have confirmed the murder of a governorship aspirant of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), in Enugu State during the last general election, Mr. Dons Udeh vowing to go after his killers.
The Eastern Updates had reported that Udeh’s lifeless body was recovered at the 9th Mile Area of the State a few days after he was reported missing.
The Commissioner of Police, Enugu State, Ahmed Ammani has ordered for the immediate arrest of his killers.
Ammani, who spoke through the State Police Public Relations Officer, Daniel Ndukwe, Wednesday, ordered ‘the Homicide Section of the State CID and Tactical Squads of the Command to combine efforts and conduct a full-scale discreet investigation to unravel the circumstances of the murder’.
The police commissioner urged his men to “fish out and bring the perpetrators of the heinous crime to book, within the shortest possible time”.
He confirmed that: “The lifeless and decomposing body of the deceased, identified as a 2023 Enugu State Governorship Election Aspirant under the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), was found in a bush at 9th Mile Bypass in Udi Local Government Area, on 25/04/2023 at about 1100hrs, with marks of violence, which strongly suggests that he was murdered.
“The corpse was evacuated to the hospital, where it was confirmed dead and deposited in the mortuary for preservation and medical autopsy, by Police Operatives serving in 9th Mile Police Division of the Command.
“Meanwhile, preliminary investigation indicates that the deceased was reported to have been missing since Saturday, 22nd April 2023, at about 4pm, when he left his Enugu City home in a white-coloured Toyota Highlander Jeep, with registration number: ENU 800 NX, to an undisclosed destination.
“All efforts made to trace his whereabouts proved abortive, until his remains were found on the said date and location, while the vehicle was later found abandoned and recovered today, 26/04/2023 at about 10am, at Ngwo, along Old Enugu Road, Udi Local Government Area.
“Further development shall be communicated, please”.
