Buhari Orders Arrest Of Killers Of Labour Party Senatorial Candidate

President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the arrest of killers of Chief Oyibo Chukwu, the Labour Party (LP) senatorial candidate for Enugu East Senatorial District and his personal aide.

The President who condemned the killing in a statement by his spokesman, Femi Adesina on Friday, directed security agencies to track down the culprits of the “heinous crime”.

Buhari said that the perpetrators of the “ignoble act” in Awkunanaw, Enugu South Local Government Area of Enugu State, had no respect for human life and dignity.

He said the perpetrators deserved the wrath of natural and divine justice.

He further affirmed his commitment to an election devoid of violence and rancour.

He reminded all political actors the choice of the electorate would count and urged all eligible Nigerians to “boldly” exercise their civic rights without any fear of intimidation.

The President, who condoled with families of the victims, the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) and the Labour Party, prayed for the repose of the souls of the deceased and comfort for those who mourned.
