The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council, OYC, has reacted to the recent assassination of the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Scientific Equipment Development Initiative, SEDI, Prof. Samuel Ndubuisi by some gun-wielding men.
The former Enugu State University of Science and Technology, ESUTH, Prof. Samuel Ndubuisi was killed in cold blood on the Enugu Port-Harcourt Expressway on Wednesday evening.
The President-General of the OYC, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike has hit out against the perpetrators of the crime as he called for justice to prevail in the crime committed.
“We are in deep pains over the gruesome murder of Prof. Simon Ndubuisi in the most horrible manner. It is so sad that this is happening barely two days after another young man, the CEO of AutoEase was cut in his prime by unknown gunmen.
“This growing trend of crime in our dear state is totally unacceptable; we are in deep pain because Enugu State is not known for this. Who did we offend that has chosen to visit this terror on us?
“We are asking the entire Enugu youths to say no to these mindless killings; it will do us no good,” Okwu declared.
“Enugu is the most peaceful State and we should not let anyone rob us of that very important toga.
“I urge all the youths of Enugu State to stand with the Governor in this very challenging time.
“May I also call on security agencies to step up action in securing the people of Enugu State; they cannot continue to be taken unaware while crimes of this magnitude are being perpetrated in our dear State. They must have to rise to the occasion,”
