Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari says killers of Dr. Chike Akunyili, will face both the judgment of man, and that of God.
Chike, the husband of late former Director-General of National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), Prof Dora Akunyili, was murdered in Anambra State on Tuesday.
Buhari, in a statement issued by presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, said he was deeply saddened by the gruesome killing of Akunyili.
The President said he shared the pain of the offspring of Prof and Dr Akunyili, their families and friends whose lives would never remain the same after the inhuman and reprehensible act that happened in Onitsha, Anambra State.
Buhari added that he had fond memories of working with the late Dora Akunyili at the Petroleum Trust Fund (PTF) and that Nigerians would never forget the memory of the amazon, who distinguished herself as a courageous, dependable and patriotic citizen.
He enjoined security agencies and leaders of thought to work harder to bring an end to the violence being unleashed on innocent Nigerians.
The President assured the grieving families who lost their loved ones in the incident that the perpetrators of the “heinous act will face both the judgment of man, and that of God.”
