Anambra State: Assailants Murder Prominent Igbo Chief Cajetan Nwokike

Shadowy gunmen on Thursday assassinated the former President of Amansea Development Union in Anambra. According to reports the victim was ambushed and killed at his residence.

The National President of the Association of Past Presidents-General of Anambra State, Omife I, confirmed the ex-president’s demise in a statement to journalists on Friday.

While sympathising with the traumatized family of the deceased, Omife called on the state Governor, Charles Soludo, to ensure that the killers are apprehended

The statement reads, “The Association of Past Presidents-General of Anambra State (APPAS) has received the shocking news of the brutal death of one of her members, Chief Cajetan Nwokike, former PG Amansea, who was allegedly shot dead by unknown gunmen yesterday morning in his house at Amansea.

“The report said that late Cajetan Nwokike was performing his traditional morning prayer of breaking of kola nut that fateful morning when two young men entered his house and shot him point blank on the head, killing him instantly.

“APPAS is gravely worried about Chief Nwokike’s death which is one too many and we are appealing to Governor Soludo and the security agents to leave no stone unturned to unmask the perpetrators of this serial killings.

“We have no doubt that Governor Soludo has the capacity to do this, given his track record in security management so far.

“We will deeply miss Chief Cajetan Nwokike, a man who was full of life and very active in APPAS, whose death has created a big vacuum in our Association.

“We condole with his family and assure them that his killers will not go unpunished. May his soul rest in peace.”
