As Family Demands Justice

By Jude Atuplazi

The family of the beheaded Anambra Lawmaker, Hon. Okechukwu Okoye, has called on the Government of Anambra State led by Prof Chukwuma Soludo and the Anambra Assembly to fish out those that killed their son.

Mr David Okoye, brother to the late lawmaker, made this appeal in his speech at the valedictory session held in honour of the murdered legislator by the Anambra Assembly at plenary last Tuesday.

Mr. Okoye who said his younger brother was assassinated, thanked the Anambra State House of Assembly and the Anambra State Government for all that they had done so far; even as he conveyed his family’s gratitude to everyone for their support.

But he however said the family was demanding for justice over the death of their brother.

‘There must be justice because our brother was assassinated for whatever reason they (killers) had but we insist that they must be brought to book to face justice,’ he said.

According to a the announcement made by the Anambra Speaker, Rt. Hon Uche Okafor, thanksgiving Mass would be held this Sunday, 24 July, at St Patrick’s Catholic Church by 9:am

The vigil Mass took place at his compound in Isuofia, Aguata LGA, last Thursday, while the interment took place last Friday.
