Reacting to the sad and gruesome news, Governor Soludo said no human being should ever experience death in that way. He averred that it is a test of the resolve of the Anambra people and every community must be united and join forces with Government in other to reclaim their homeland.
He also pledged that their deaths (Okechukwu Okoye and Cyril Chiegboka) would not be in vain
The Governor wrote;
These are my brothers!
Hon. Okechukwu Okoye (Okey dị okay) and Cyril Chiegboka were murdered in the most gruesome manner. No human being should ever have to experience death in that way.
For no just reason, rampaging criminals have elected to desecrate our land with the blood of the innocent.
This is a test of our resolve, and we are more emboldened than cowed that this criminality MUST be stamped out of our land.
Ụmụnnem Ndị Anambra, this is not who we are. The party is over, and every community must brace up to join forces with government in this war to reclaim our homeland.
Okey and Cyril will NEVER die in vain.
May God console their young families, the people of Isuofia and ndị Anambra. May their souls and all others who have lost their lives in the hands of these criminals continue to rest in peace.
We have placed a ten million Naira (10,000,000) bounty for anyone with useful information. This war is one that Anambra must win!
