Lawyers In Anambra Protest Kidnap, Murder Of Member | TimeTestedNews



Legal practitioners  in Anambra State on Mondayheld  a peaceful march against the kidnap and murder of one of their members, Mr Francis Onwuachu, the late President General of Omor Community in Ayamelum Local Government Area.
The lawyers, from the seven Nigeria Bar Association (NBA ) divisions in the State, began the protest at the Anambra State Judiciary Headquarters, Awka, from where they marched to main gate of Anambra State Government House, Awka.
Condemning the kidnap and the murder, they appealed to Governor Willie Obiano to nail the masterminds of the heinous act.
Mr Onwuachu was kidnapped by suspected gunmen two Friday nights ago, and his corpse was found a week later after series of intensive and coordinated attempts by the state government through the various security agencies to rescue him alive.
Addressing the protesting lawyers, the Secretary to the Government of Anambra State, Professor Solo Chukwulobelu flanked by other senior government officials, assured them that the state government has already made intense efforts to nip the gruesome development, as the governor has pledged that those who want to distort public safety would be made to pay.
