The late Oyibo Chukwu

Labour Party Presidential Candidate, Mr Peter Obi, has condemned in the strongest terms possible, the killing of the Party’s senatorial candidate for Enugu East, Mr Oyibo Chukwu on Wednesday by yet to be identified gunmen.

Mr Obi says the brutal killing of Chukwu and his supporters on Wednesday is “barbaric, inhuman, and senseless.”

The Labour Party Presidential hopeful also says he was devastated by the killings and called on the security agencies and the Enugu State Government to do everything possible to fish out the killers of the LP members.

“I am shocked by this dastardly act few hours to the National elections.
There will never be any justification for taking human life”, Obi laments,
makung it clear that the activities of evil men like the killers of Chukwu do not represent the character of Igbos and Nigerians as a whole.

He appeals to everyone to join hands to defeat these evil men and women who are an insignificant part of peace loving Nigerians.

Obi urges people in the south east as well as election officials there not to be deterred or frightened away from participating in the forthcoming election.

He condoles with families of those killed and prays that God in His infinite mercies would grant their souls eternal rest.
