ASSASSINATION OF MADAM LUCY UKABUNWA WOKOCHA, MOTHER OF A RIVERS STATE COMMISSIONER – A DANGEROUS DIMENSION, CONDEMNABLE, AND AN UNACCEPTABLE ACT – PPA
The news of the gruesome murder of Madam Lucy Ukabunwa Wokocha the 64 old
mother of Hon. Wokocha the Honourable Commissioner of Power in the Rivers
State in the wee hours of yesterday is totally unacceptable. We condemn
such a diabolical act in its totality and wish to implore that the Rivers
State Police Command will arrest the culprits without delay and make them
face the full brunt of the law.
We are still in shock and trying hard to understand the sense in harming
such an elderly woman in her country home. As much as we will not like to
link this to politics but coming a few hours after the Governor of Rivers
State, Rt. Hon. Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi told the State during his
stewardship address that some politicians are piling up arms for the 2011
general election, it will be difficult not to.
We appeal to the Rivers State Police command to justify the huge
expenditure by the Rivers State Government and arrest those behind this
heinous act in a matter of hours or days just as they did with the killers
of Soboma George so as to reassure the people of the State, particularly
our investors, that she is still very secure and remains the best option
We urge all and sundry to take things easy and go about their daily
business as God will not allow the enemies of the State to succeed in this
act aimed at unsettling the Government and discouraging the Rt. Hon.
Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi in his efforts to bring hope and succour to our
people after eight years of misrule and misapplication of our common
PPA for avoidance of doubt PPA means Princewill Political Associates, a
political pressure group that has its membership cut across the six States
in Niger Delta propagating good governance and projecting the philosophy,
ideology and principles of Prince Tonye Princewill the Prince of Niger
Delta Politics as a way out of the present political quagmire in Nigeria.
