ENUGU – The Enugu State Government has directed the Management of ESUT Teaching Hospital Parklane, Enugu, to immediately carry out an autopsy on the body of Mrs. Regina Mba of Nchatancha Nike in Enugu East Local Government Area, who was reportedly killed by herdsmen recently.
A statement by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Prof. Simon Uchenna Ortuanya, said that the medical exercise is to assist security agencies in their ongoing investigations.
In a related development, the President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Chief John Nnia Nwodo, has called for thorough investigation into Mrs. Mba’s death.
Nwodo made the call on Saturday through his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Chief Emeka Attamah.
According to him, the Executive of Ohanaeze Ndigbo had visited the victim’s home in Enugu which, he said, was the reason for him to add his voice to the condemnation of the dastardly and inhuman act.
He called on security agencies to unravel the conspiracy and tendency of the hoodlums who are making the state insecure with incessant kidnapping and killings which hitherto were absent.
