By Sunday Elom N
The former traditional ruler of Mkpunando Aguleri in Anambra East Local Government Area of Anambra State, Igwe Alex Edozieuno, was reportedly murdered yesterday alongside his driver, identified as Chukwuemeka, along the Ezu Bridge, Otuocha.
Unfortunately, until the time of filing this report, it is yet clear what led to the assassination of the 62-year-old former traditional ruler.
However, it could be recalled that Igwe Edozieuno was among the 12 traditional rulers who were suspended in 2020 by Governor Willie Obiano because they visited President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja.
Confirming the death of the monarch to newsmen, the Anambra State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Ikenga Tochukwu, said the Commissioner of Police, Mr. Tony Olofu, had visited the scene of the incident.According to DSP Tochukwu,
“The CP described the incident as man’s inhumanity to man and he has ordered immediate investigation into the incident.
“The exhibits recovered from the scene of the crime include one Lexus 470 with plate Reg No Aguleri-1 belonging to the victim and some expended ammunition.
“The bodies of the victims have been deposited in a mortuary.”
