A former President-General of Amansea Development Union in Anambra State, Chief Cajetan Nwokike, has reportedly been murdered.

He was allegedly killed on Thursday morning by yet-to-be identified gunmen.

This tragic incident marks yet another assassination of a community leader in the state, occurring less than two months after the assassination of Chief Silas Onyima, the President-General of Umuoji.

The news of Nwokike’s murder was disclosed Omife I. Omife, the National President of the Association of Past Presidents-General of Anambra State, in a statement issued to the press on Friday.

According to Omife, Nwokike was fatally shot by assailants while performing his customary morning prayers(breaking the kola nut) in his residence in Amansea.

The gunmen, said to be two young men, entered his home and mercilessly shot him at point-blank range, resulting in his instant death.

The statement read in part,” The Association of Past Presidents-General of Anambra State (APPAS) has expressed deep concern over the escalating violence and urged Governor Soludo and law enforcement agencies to spare no effort in apprehending the perpetrators responsible for these heinous acts.

“The community is reeling from the loss of another esteemed leader, emphasizing the urgent need for swift and decisive action to bring the culprits to justice and restore peace to the state.”
