PDP condemns murder of Rivers chieftain's wife

09 July 2015, 09:51Okoro Chinedu

Lagos - Following the murder of the wife of a chieftain of the party, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State has appealed to criminals in the region to desist from crime.

Ebire Ejor Ngowah Ejor, wife of the former Executive Chairman of Eleme Local Government Council, Ejor Ngowah Ejor, was found murdered in the early hours of Tuesday.

Assassins allegedly hired kidnapped her on Sunday in Port Harcourt.

“The PDP Chairman describes the killing as unwarranted, barbaric and shocking to the PDP family, saying the manner she was abducted, and later killed clearly exposes political undertone in the sad incident,” Jerry Needam, spokesperson of the Rivers PDP Chairman, Felix Obuah, said.

“Obuah bemoans unjustifiable taking of someone’s life, and urges the Rivers State Police Command and other relevant security agencies to beef up security in and around the State, demanding prompt unraveling by the police, of those behind this dastardly act and other criminal activities in the State.”

Obuah warned criminals to desist from such acts.

“While reiterating the avowed determination of the present government to ensure a clean, healthy and safe environment in the State, the PDP Chairman appeals to the youths and all those involved in acts of kidnapping, killing, cultism, armed robbery and other social vices in the State to desist forthwith before the full wrath of the law catches on them,” Needam stated.

Obuah further called on parents and guardians, churches and corporate organizations to join the government in fighting crimes in the state, and again urges the security agencies to redouble their efforts in tackling the menace.
