He further disclosed that they also stabbed another young man who alighted from a vehicle to enquire about why they stabbed Ogbonda.

Uba said while Ogbonda died on the spot, the other young man gave up the ghost at the Federal Medical Centre, Owerri where he was rushed to.

Ubah said; “We at the Protect The Weak International Foundation are calling on the Imo state Governor Hope Uzodimma to  relieve Chinasa Nwaneri of his position with immediate effect to save his government from further opprobrium due to the shameful actions of this man since this government came to be.

“Secondly we call upon the Commissioner of Police to immediately arrest and prosecute Chinasa Nwaneri and his boys for the alleged killing of Ndubuisi Ogbonda.

“We are giving the police 48 hours to do the lawful or we shall approach the court.

“We also demand for the immediate release of Okada riders who were arrested for protesting the killing of their colleague. They broke no law by protesting the gruesome killing of their member when they carried a coffin to show their grief. 

“These arrested Okada riders are at the State Police Command 

“We frown at the continuous intimidation of citizens by the officials of Imo State government. We frown at the reckless behaviour of officials of Imo State government and their insensitivity to the plight of the poor masses in the state.”
