Former Anambra Governor, Peter Obi has described the killing of Dr. Chike Akunyili and seven others as a sad development for the state.
Obi stated this on Wednesday in an interview with newsmen at the palace of the traditional ruler of Agulu Community, Igwe Innocent Obodoakor.
“It is a sad situation and nobody can tell the reason our society degenerated to this level.”
While warning that the development portends grave danger if not urgently arrested, Obi said the only solution to this problem is collective attention between the people and government.
Having spoken with late Dr. Akunyili’s child abroad and other members of his immediate family, the ormer vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 general elections thanked the Police for taking the bodies of the deceased to the hospital after the attack.
