Fashola inaugurates 1.06 km road at Aminu Kano University Hospital

The Ebonyi State Police Command has pledged to arrest and prosecute the killers of a 35-year-old woman, Nnenna Onu.
Police Public Relations Officer DSP Loveth Odah told reporters in Abakaliki yesterday that the command would spare no effort in its investigation to apprehend the killers.
The single woman was set on fire alive by her attackers on December 23, 2021 and was burned beyond recognition.
His left leg was reportedly severed from his body and his remains were dumped behind his late father’s house in Onicha-Igboeze, Onicha Local Government Area (LGA).
According to the police spokesman, the police commissioner, Mr. Aliyu Garba, will not stop until the perpetrators of this heinous crime are brought to justice.
“The Deputy Commissioner of Police (Investigation) will join the community team and ensure stakeholder involvement in the case to help apprehend the perpetrators.
“They will be arrested wherever they are,” Odah said.
She debunked speculation that the police were doing nothing about it.
“It’s not true that the police do nothing.
“The truth is that the matter was reported to us after two months it happened,” she added.
Meanwhile, the state’s National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has appealed to LGA Chairman Mr. Felix Igboke and other stakeholders to assist the police in tracking down those responsible for the this despicable act.
The Commission’s State Coordinator, Mr. Christopher Okorie, made the call during a press briefing in Abakaliki.
Okorie said the commission received the complaint about the incident of deceased mother and sister, Agnes and Juliet, respectively, on February 10, alleging that Nnenna was murdered.
He said the plaintiffs further alleged that the attackers threatened to kill her and her mother.
He urged the coordinator of Ezeukwa Development Center, Mr. Igwe Agwu, the traditional chief and the religious leaders of the community to join in the manhunt for the UN assassins.
He further called on the public to report all cases of human rights violations to the NHRC hotline 07060455554, the police and other people involved in defending human rights.
Okorie said, “Evil can only be stopped when exposed.
“We passionately call on all people of goodwill, civil society organizations and other groups to come to the aid of this widow to seek justice for her late daughter and their safety.”
