The Commissioner of Police, Enugu State, Mr. Ahmed Ammani, has ordered intensive manhunt for those who killed a senatorial candidate of Labour Party (LP) in the state on Wednesday.
This is contained in a statement issued by the command’s spokesman, DSP Daniel Ndukwe, in Enugu on Thursday.
Suspected members of Eastern Security Network murdered the LP candidate for Enugu East Senatorial Zone, Chief Oyibo Chukwu.
The hoodlums also burnt to death a member of the Peoples Democratic Party and attacked the convoy of the All Progressives Congress Governorship Candidate in the state.
The Commissioner who visited the scenes of the incidents, strongly condemned the barbaric acts, commiserated with the political parties and family members of the deceased.
He vowed to ensure that the perpetrators are fished out and made to face the full wrath of the law.
Ammani said the command and other security agencies were ready for the hoodlums and had emplaced security measures for peaceful and credible elections in the state.
The commissioner urged the citizens not to succumb to the cowardly antics of the hoodlums, “which are aimed at creating fear and disrupting the electoral process”.
