Reps want IGP to investigate assassination of Enugu traditional ruler

The House of Representatives on Wednesday urged the Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase, to intensify investigation into the killing of a traditional ruler in Enugu, Igwe Peter Onuoha.

The resolution emanated from matter of urgent public importance raised by Rep. Chukwuemeka Ujam (Enugu-PDP), which was unanimously adopted by members.

It would be recalled that on July 11, the traditional ruler of Isienu Amofu, Igwe Peter Onuohu and three others were allegedly assassinated by unknown gunmen.

Ujam had expressed worry that the assassination occurred without any form of resistance by security operatives in the area.

According to him, the unknown gunmen engaged in sporadic shooting for a lengthy period of time, leaving scores of injured community members who are currently receiving treatment in Emene, Enugu.

“This dastardly act amounts to a desecration of the traditional institution of the people of Isienu Amofu and a reprisal attack could be eminent.

“If drastic measures are not employed, a repeat of this dastard incident is likely to occur,’’ Ujam said.
