Former deputy governor of Anambra state killed by kidnappers

First Deputy Governor of Anambra State and National Vice President of ACN (South East), Dr. Chudi Nwike, who was kidnapped on March 19, has been killed by his kidnappers.

Dr Nwike's corpse was found on Monday April 8th in the middle of the road leading to Alizomor community near Agbor in Ika South Local Government Area of Delta State, after the family had paid the kidnappers N5m ransom.

The late ACN chieftain served as deputy governor between 1991 and 1993, under former governor, Dr. Chukwu-emeka Ezeife. See ACN press release on Dr Nwike's murder after the cut...


Anambra’s Pioneer Deputy Governor killed by kidnappers
Okolo Azu Ogbunike  aka ejiem ooo!
Omambalai n’umu Chi ewelu efifie jie !!
Umu Anambra  izuzu be zu gbe !!!
Nigeria  alu emeee nu moooo!!!!
With a heart full of pain and sorrow, Action Congress of Nigeria, Anambra State Chapter, in consultation with the NwikeFamily of Azu Ogbunike, Oyi Local Government Area ofAnambra State announces the death murder of Dr ChuddyNwike, Ibolo Ogbunike, First Deputy Governor of Anambra State and National Vice President of the Action Congress of Nigeria (South East).
Dr Nwike’s body has been identified by Our State Chairman, Chief Amaechi Obidike, our State Secretary, Barr Emeka Ibeand his brother Dr Bufo Nwike at Agbor Police Station in Delta State.
Dr Nwike, who became Deputy Governor of Anambra State under Gov Chukwuemeka Ezeife in 1991, was abducted by gunmen on March 19, 2013 by suspected kidnappers.
According to the family, the suspected kidnappers made contact with his brother Dr Bufo Nwike shortly after with a ransom demand of N30 million equivalent, delivered in US Dollars. The younger Dr Nwike, negotiated the sum to N5 million which delivered to a location in Delta State through a courier on Friday April 05, 2013, after rejecting the offer for the wife or the brother to deliver the money.

But rather than release the ex-Deputy Governor, the kidnappers seized the money and the courier on April 05, 2013, cutting off all communication, until the body was found.

All efforts and all contacts made by our party to relevant authorities had not yielded any dividend and have surprisingly not even drawn any concern from quarters we took for granted.

We worked and prayed to see Dr Nwike return safe and alive to continue contributing as he has been doing to our party, but we have not. We toiled and moiled to see our South East National Vice Chairman, play his traditional fatherly role in the tasks immediately before us. But we are crest-fallen that Dr Nwike as gone the way of all mortals, though in a way we would have wished away.
We are tremendously ashamed of the circumstances of his death and wish we could now erase from history that a former Deputy Governor of a State in Nigeria died in this manner.

Our Leader Dr Chris Nwabueze Ngige mourns, our committed party faithfuls weep and our overwhelming supporters wail, butDr Nwike,Ibolo Ogbunike ,distinguished medical Doctor, calculative politician and quintessential statesman is no more.
Since the security agencies did not succeed in tracking downAnambra’s Deputy Governor in life, we urge them to rise and smash all obstacles on the way to unearthing the abductors and killers of ACN’s rare gem, an embodiment of peace and knowledge.

We urge them to leave no stone unturned and not be beaten by any decoy until the nation has the right answers to the nagging questions. For we may know who will it be next.

Ebeooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!

Chudi Nwike was murdered by kidnappers on the instruction of his political enemies within PDP who are now targeting ACN leaders and anyone who stands in their way.

PDP are determined to win the next election at all cost. Who will the assasinate next?

May God save us from PDP and its power hungry leaders.

As a victim of kidnapping,i mourn with his family but as a resident Nigerian,i weep for the decay in this country which has led to this collosal loss. Our leaders should wake up (from their dream state) and realise that in the near future the security of being in govt will depart from them and they will continue to live like the (mere mortals)rest of us.

I wonder why people derive joy in kidnapping and taking lives of their fellow human beings.

Why kill a man when the stipulated amount has been paid.

As a full blooded anambarian,this is a soul piercing news that will strike a lot of nerves....in our land

I just hope this is not politically planned.

The perpertrators and all that planned for the kidnapping and death of this man shall never ever know peace,prosperity,happiness,any good fin in life.

They shall be eaten by vultures,not even a soul alive shall even listen to their pleas.

RIP Sir
RIP Dr. Nwike

Nigeria needs governance and transparency from the top or these things will keep happening. The system is poisoned and regard for human life has beenwiped away. We are losing our humanity.those in power and those around those in power should wake up
From their slumber of greed and selfishness. Those high walls and gates will soon come crumbling with the rest of the country. God help us help ourselves before its too late

The major problem is the decay in the management of the country's affairs.overtime this has led to countless idle youths without relevant skills to empower themselves.everything Is imported.we can't produce anything as a nation.every one waits for some kind of handout from government.we nid to rise up as a people and say no to the way things are done in this country.For the late gentleman, may his soul rest in peace.amen

Some people are just monsters, there is no justification for kipnapping much less killing your victim. I don't care what drove the 'sons of Baal' to do this but whatever their problems where before this may those problems be multiplied to infinity.

I have had a family member kidnapped and you don't want to know what it does to your psyche.

I sincerely hope that those responsible meet their ends in the most horrible way befitting their actions...RIP Sir.

See what our beloved Nigeria has become under prolonged period of bad leadership, ineffective policing and compromised judiciary.

Unless governance becomes purposeful and value-adding, policing becomes proactive and objective, and the judiciary frees itself from executive manipulation to discharge its constitutional responsibilities fearlessly, Nigeria will continue to lose young and old talents via senseless killings and kidnappings.

Because of the unabated failures enumerated above, sacrosanct traditional values have been flushed down the drain and our country has become a mad jungle driven by a "dog eat dog" creed where people embezzle, kidnap for rituals & ransom, kill without remorse, rob at gun point, etc.

Whilst we continue in search for a remedy to these national malaise, my heartfelt condolences goes to the family of the deceased.

If the penalty for kidnapping was death by firing squad, the menace will stop, but, the creators of this kidnapping trend are the law makers who intend to continue to utilize the same tool to keep themselves in power.

The courier ho took the ransom was also killed. It was obviously a planned vendetta and not just a kidnap. Those murderers wanted to inflict deep pain on the Nwike family.

Ok, now that they have killed 2 people, they also should not die, abi?

One day will be one day.

May God comfort the bereaved families in Jesus name. Amen

This is just so unfortunate. I dnt know how people have the mind to kill their fellow human being and go abt their daily lives like nothing ever happened. I hope some how or some day justice is served in regards to this man's untimely death. I really wish the government would sit up and work on restoring sanity, security and fight towards the eradication of corruption in Nigeria because sincerely, it has gotten out of hand.

ONU-RAZOR said...

The lesson for every Nigerian is simple...it's time for soul-searching.Every person should evaluate themselves concerning the small evils they commit: cheating in exams, age falsification, stealing public money, thuggery, indian hemp/cocaine/heroine etc trafficking and consumption, gun running, and so on and so forth. No evil is small and evil is a web; it's all linked together. Believe it or not whatever small evil each one of us commits helps in strenghtening other evils, big and small alike. Hence if we must come out of this mess we must individually and collectively stop committing all manner of evil, not just kidnapping and murder. Nigerians are we ready to forfeit our own little evils???????????
