The Ebonyi chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has paid a condolence visit to the family of late Mr Ozoemena Nkwuda, a Chieftain of the party in the state.
The slain Chieftain, 42, was allegedly murdered by suspected political thugs of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ndiogbu-Ndieze, Inyimagu, in Izzi Local Government Area of Ebonyi state on February 25, 2023, the day of presidential and National Assembly polls were held.
Dr Ifeanyi Chukwuma Odii, PDP Gubernatorial candidate in the state, who was represented by his running mate, Senator Paulinus Igwe Nwagu, on Sunday in Izzi, described the deceased as a man of peace.
He urged the family to be strong and uphold their late father’s principles of peace and love.
“We come here to pay our late member, the respect he deserved, and to sympathize with the family he left behind.
“It a pity that a young man of his age would just die and leave his family with four kids. We are worried because he is a brother, an Ebonyi man, a party member and a good fellow.
“I urge the family to take heart and may the Almighty God give them the ability, capacity, strength, and grace to withstand this loss,” Odii added.
Dr. Sam Egwu, Senator representing Ebonyi North District and PDP senatorial candidate in the just concluded election urged the family to take heart and prayed God to accept his soul.
“We have come to sympathize with the family, and we believe those involved in this killing will be brought to book,” Egwu said.
Austin Igwe Edeze, Director-General, PDP campaign council in Ebonyi State, who led the party delegation to Nkwuda’s family, condemned the heinous crime.
Anthony Nkwuda, the deceased’s elder brother, thanked the PDP team for showing respect to his late younger brother.
“Just as everyone had said, my brother was a good man. He never cared so much about political differences. On behalf of our family, I thank you all for the visit,” the senior Nkwuda stated.
Late Nkwuda is survived by a wife and four children.
