UCHE NWACHIME, ENUGU STATE - NIGERIA HIGH CHIEF, MURDERED!
He was a son! He was a brother! He was a husband! He was a father! He was an uncle and above all he was a high chief, a royal father to so many people, the people of Obe, Nkanu West Local Government Area of Enugu State, Nigeria. He was their traditional ruler! He was abducted! He was probably tortured! He was slaughtered! To add insult to injury, the lifeless body of the dead Royal Father was found, dumped in a dumpster like an ordinary garbage! This gruesome act was carried out by a band of ruthless marauding beasts with no regard to the decency of life! To them, life is worthless and a human being, an ordinary dirt to be dumped in a refuse site. It all happened in Enugu State, Nigeria! Icheoku condemns this wanton act of gruesome murder in the strongest term possible! His name, His Royal Highness Igwe Uche Nwachime! Igwe Uche Nwachime was killed in cold blood by some evil-men on Monday December 1st, 2008 in Enugu State, Nigeria. Igwe Uche Nwachime's body was discovered, following a search party organized to locate the missing high chief, at a dumpster (refuse dump-site) on the Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway in Enugu State, Nigeria! Until his death, Igwe Uche Nwachime, was the proprietor of Mac Royal Hotel, Presidential Road, Enugu, Enugu State, Nigeria. The people of Obe mourns and so does Icheoku, for the crass lawlessness pervading Nigeria and now, particularly Enugu State. Igwe Uche Nwachime was a victim of a society on the brink of becoming a failed state where insecurity and lawlessness rule supreme! It would appear that the season of kidnapping has arrived in Enugu State, Nigeria! The proprietor of Grand Riveri Hotel, Enugu was kidnapped a week ago but was later released alive, after the payment of N5 million ransom. Mr. Paul Edemobi, the proprietor of Paul and Grace Foundation and the younger brother of the Nigeria's Director-General of National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), Dr. Dora Akunyili, was also kidnapped in Enugu on Monday, December 1st, 2008 from his 10B Savage Crescent, GRA Enugu. His captors are demanding N30 million ransom for his release.
Icheoku hereby call on the governor of Enugu State, Sullivan Chime to immediately reign-in these marauding beasts, fermenting terror in Enugu State. Icheoku says, these incessant abductions, torture and murders is unacceptable and demands a ruthless response from the authorites in Enugu State! These deviants have laid complete siege in Enugu State and gradually enveloping the entire state in an insecurity and paralysis fog and should be stopped forthwith! No one feels safe in Enugu State, anymore! A very drastic, take no-prisoner action is what is required of a visionary government, to check-mate this horrendous acts before it turns into an all-out anarchy. If this menace is left unchecked, it could spill over, spreading like a harmattan-fire, leading to copy-cat criminal misbehaviour that might make Enugu State hellishly unlivable. This is particularly so during this Yuletide season, with so many Enugu State indigenes returning home from all across the world, to celebrate the season with their families and friends in Enugu State. Icheoku says, enough of this insecurity madness in Enugu State, Governor Chime!
