Anambra state government has placed a bounty on the killers of the late NAFDAC DG’s husband, Chike Akunyili.
Eko Hot Blog reports that the Anambra State Governor, South East Nigeria, Willie Obiano, has announced a reward of N20 million for anyone with useful information that could aid the arrest of gunmen that killed the husband of former information minister, Dora Akunyili, Dr. Chike Akunyili.
Eko Hot Blog had earlier reported that Akunyili was killed at Umuoji in Idemili North LGA of Anambra State on Tuesday evening.
It was gathered that the deceased driver and escort were also killed during the attack.
A source close to the family said the deceased was still at the University of Nigeria Nsukka Alumni Association (UNAA), where the late Dora was honoured some hours before he was killed.
The source, who was shattered by the murder, said: “God, pls render the devil and his agents powerless and useless.
“I was with this man yesterday same yesterday at Sharon Hall, All Saints Cathedral, Onitsha. It was an occasion of the University of Nigeria Nsukka Alumni Association (UNAA), Onitsha branch event, where they honoured late Dora Akunyili.
“He spoke glowingly about Dora and donated 500k to the association.
He was there with his son, Obum, now working with the Anambra state government.
“We saw them off to the car, and it was emotional when Obum hugged him tight as both of them separated to join their respective vehicles.
“Obum was in a white Hilux while the man was in a big Jeep (i think Prado). God have mercy!”
Dr Akunyili was the Proprietor and Chief Medical Director of one of the largest medical institutions in Enugu, St. Leo’s Hospital.
