Security agents in the country have been ordered to find and prosecute the killers of Dr. Chike Akunyili.
The slain medical doctor was the widower of former communications minister, Dora Akunyili.
David Umahi, chairman of the forum, gave the order in a statement he issued on Wednesday.
“Ndigbo is now losing most of its finest to hoodlums in the zone”, said Umahi, governor of Ebonyi State.
“On behalf of the Governors of the South-East, we condemn the act. It is not only barbaric, but it is also unbecoming how much human lives no longer matter in our society,” he said.
“We give security agencies a marching order to go all out to uncover and arrest all the perpetrators of this inhuman act and make them face justice.”
The governor also urged collaboration between citizens and security agencies, including the region’s security outfit ‘Ebubeagu’.
