Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige has condemned the assassination of Chief Alex Edozieuno, a former traditional ruler of Mkpunando Aguleri, calling it an “unfortunate criminal deed.”

The minister encouraged security services to track down those responsible for the murder and bring them to justice, according to a statement sent by his media office in Abuja.

“Chief Alex Edozieuno before he became Igwe was a grassroots politician and a firm believer in just cause. Long ago while  we were in PDP, he was a field man and a political forte of sorts.

“I recall the last conversation I had with him last year, when he called to complain about his deposition as the traditional ruler of his community. I advised  him to take it as an act of God and move on.

“It is quite troubling Alex was gruesomely murdered by yet-to-be identified persons. I send my sincere condolences to his wife and children and all who mourn this painful, brutal death.

“I urge the security agencies to fish out his killers and bring them to justice,” Ngige said in the statement.
