We Will Arrest Killers of YPP Ward Chairman in Nanka, Police Vow

By Ikeugonna Eleke

The Anambra State Police Command has vowed that it will stop at nothing to arrest killers of the Nanka Ward Chairman of Young Progressive Party (YPP).

The incident happened on Saturday, November 11 after the ward chairman, Mr Joe Mohale, hosted the party’s House of Representatives candidate in a yet to be scheduled rerun election, Hon Princess Chinwe Nnabuife.

He was shot dead shortly after the meeting by men suspected to be political thugs who addressed him as a saboteur, probably for hosting Nnabuife when a son of the community, Hon Okwudili Ezenwankwo, was also in the same election.

In a press release by the Police Command’s spokesperson, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, the Commissioner of Police in Anambra State, CP Aderemi Adeoye, said the Command would hunt down and bring to justice the killers of Mohale.

The Commissioner in the release condemned the killing in the strongest possible terms, describing the killers as cowards who had murdered sleep.

‘The Police are already working on vital clues to unmask the perpetrators. They might think they have committed a perfect crime and that they would get away with it, but they delude themselves.

‘The Command wishes to re-assure all law abiding citizens, especially in Nanka, not to be afraid but to join hands with the Police in bringing the murderers and their sponsor to justice,’ the release read.
