The All Progressives Grand Alliance has vowed to compel the All Progressives Congress, to prove the allegation of murder levelled against the wife of the Anambra State governor, Mrs Ebelechukwu Obiano.

State Chairman of APC and the Director- General of the Andy Uba Campaign Organisation, Basil Ejidike, and Paul Chukwuma, respectively, alleged that the death of a deposed Monarch, Alex Edozieuno was politically motivated.

At a joint press conference in Awka, on Sunday, the duo said, “We have been receiving death threats; threats to our families from highly placed individuals in APGA including the wife of the governor and a member of the House of Reps, Chinedu Obidigwe.

“With this death, we felt we should address the press. We are calling on the law enforcement agencies – the police, the DSS to quickly move into action and conduct a proper investigation since the threats have now started translating to deaths.”

In response, the National Coordinator of APGA Media Warriors, Chinedu Obigwe, addressed a press conference in Awka, on Wednesday. Obigwe urged the police and other security agencies to invite the leadership of the APC to shed light on their allegations.

The APGA chieftain said, “The trio of Andy Uba, Paul Chukwuma and Basil Ejidike need to be interrogated by security agents for them to say what they know about the gruesome murder of Alex Edozieuno.”Edozieuno, 62 and his driver, one Chukwuemeka, were killed by suspected gunmen on Friday along Ezu Bridge, Otuocha.
