Delta APC Raises Alarm Over Violent Attacks On APC Leaders in the State
Post created on 12:33 pm
The All Progressives Congress (APC) Delta State has raised alarm over the recent attacks on some political bigwigs of the Party. The Party’s concern is coming after the violent attack on the Delta North Vice Chairman of the Party as well as the gruesome murder of both the security Attachee and the driver to Chief Michael Johnny, a topmost APC Leader in Ijaw land.
It will be recalled that recently, the former Vice Chairman of the Party in Delta North, Chief George Okafor resigned his position and membership of the Party, and because nature abhors vacuum whilst also relying on the Party’s Constitution, Prince Fred Mordi was appointed an interim Chairman to take over the office of the Vice Chairman, Delta North and same was ratified by the State Executive Committee of the Party, including the Chairmen and Secretaries of the Party in the twenty five LGAs in the State.
After the newly appointed Vice Chairman rounded off the celebrations organized for him by Aniocha North APC at Ogwashi-Uku on the 3rd of July, 2021, he was waylaid on his way home by unknown gunmen who trailed him from Ogwashi-Uku to Asaba.
Luckily for him, the criminals did not cause him any serious bodily harm but his ATM card, large sum of money and other personal belongings were taken from him after been brutalized by them.
In the same vein, the security Attachee and the Driver to Chief Michael Johnny were murdered in cold blood today, July 4, 2021, in Effurun-Warri. Nothing was taken from the scene of crime which clearly shows a prima facie evidence of assassination!
According to the undiluted information at the disposal of our Party, the assailants thought that Chief Michael Johnny was in the vehicle, hence the brutal and vicious strike. We thank God for sparing the life of Chief Micheal Johnny but that notwithstanding, the gruesome murder of his close associates has left our Party in mourning.
Delta APC commiserates with the family members of the deceased persons and those they left behind. The killers and their sponsors will never know peace.
We accordingly call on the Commissioner of Police, Delta State, the DSS and other security agencies to immediately investigate the dastardly murder and attack on APC members and their Aides in the State. These coordinated attacks should not be swept under the carpet. The attackers must not go unpunished!
Lives of Deltans matter and the Governor, Sen. Ifeanyi Okowa must live up to his responsibility as the Chief Security Officer of the state. The security votes that he collects every month must be put into better use.
No Deltan deserves to be killed as the right to life is sacrosanct.
