The assassination of the party’s former governorship candidate, Mr. Dons Udeh, in Enugu, has left Chief Frank Nweke Jr., the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) candidate for governor in the 2023 elections, saying he is still in shock.
In a statement made available to newsmen in Enugu on Thursday, Nweke conveyed his thoughts and called the murder tragic.
According to him, “I am still in shock over the news of the kidnap and murder of Engr. Dons Udeh, and my heart goes out to his family and friends at this difficult time.
“It is incredibly sad to see how our society has debased the value of human life. I am particularly heartbroken to see another prominent son of Ozalla attacked in such a manner.
“While I acknowledge the high level of insecurity across the state and, indeed, Nigeria, this is one murder too many.
“We must continue to call for better societal values and definitive actions from our political leadership and security outfits.”
He pleaded with the security authorities and other pertinent parties to consider the murder and earlier attacks in the state that had not yet been addressed seriously.
Nweke demanded that the offenders be held accountable and that the state be returned to sanity.
“No one has the right to take another human life. This madness must be stopped, and we must return to the values that make us human,“ Nweke said.
