We'll Fish Out Killers Of Our Youths In Ohaozara - Gov Nwifuru Vows

By Celestine Okeh, Abakaliki

Government Francis Nwifuru of Ebonyi has  vowed to fish out the killers of innocent people in Ohaozara Local Government Area of the state, recently. 

Governor Nwifuru made the declaration recently, during a function in Okposi, Ohaozara Local Government Area.

The governor who used the event to endorse the Ohaozara Council Chairman, Mr Chinonso Ajah for second term in office, said that the unfortunate killing of some youths in the area was perpetrated so that people will lose confidence in the chairman’s abilities.

“They want me to say that the chairman does not have the capacity to maintain peace in the council.

“They don’t want him to secure a second term in office but with your affirmations and consultation with stakeholders, he has my support,” he said.

He said that the killings were also aimed at discrediting his government, especially when he leaves office as the governor.

“When I leave office and another youth is expected to take over, people will oppose such an opportunity given to the youths.

“They want people to say that when Nwifuru, a youth, was in power, there were killings.

“We should support the council chairman to deal with these people as they are not happy that the council chairman and governor are youths,” he said.

Nwifuru swore to do everything within his reach to apprehend and prosecute all those responsible for the killings in the area.

“You can’t because of politics and access to gun, say that someone will not attend a burial in his community.

“We would abide by the law in this matter but all those involved in it will not survive it,” he said.
