“This is a test of our resolve, and we are more emboldened than cowed that this criminality MUST be stamped out of our land. Ụmụnnem Ndị Anambra, this is not who we are. The party is over, and every community must brace up to join forces with government in this war to reclaim our homeland.
“Okey and Cyril will NEVER die in vain. May God console their young families, the people of Isuofia and ndị Anambra. May their souls and all others who have lost their lives in the hands of these criminals continue to rest in peace.
“We have placed a ten million Naira (10,000,000) bounty for anyone with useful information. This war is one that Anambra must win!”, Governor Soludo said.
