“You were a very nice and peaceful ‘boy’. They have killed and dumped you in the dark, but the all-knowing and all-seeing God saw everything and must expose them in due course. Fare thee well my Oku-Uguru ‘boy’.

“It’s a pity you didn’t live to see our dream of APGA taking over Abia State and my declaration as the member representing Isiala Ngwa North in the State House of Assembly come true. I promise to remember and mourn you forever as long as I live. Sleep well my ‘boy’.”

The second victim, Mr Okechukwu Obisike, an Assistant Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ezere Ward 2, in the Isikwuato Local Government Area of the state, was reportedly gunned down by unknown gunmen along Oriendu Amune Ovim on Monday at about 8.30pm.

The death of the two politicians was confirmed by Mr. Anthony Ogbizi, the Commissioner of Police in the State, who noted that investigations into the matter were still ongoing.
