President Muhammadu Buhari has said he is deeply saddened by the gruesome killing of Dr Chike Akunyili, the husband of the late former Director-General of National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), Prof Dora Akunyili.
According to a statement by Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, Buhari enjoined security agencies and leaders of thought to work harder to bring an end to the violence being unleashed on innocent Nigerians in the region.
The President assured the grieving families who lost their loved ones in the incident that the perpetrators of the heinous act will face both the judgment of man, and that of God.
He said he shares the pain of the offspring of Professor and Dr Akunyili, their families and friends whose lives will never remain the same after the inhuman and reprehensible act that happened in Onitsha, Anambra State.
President Buhari said he has fond memories of working with the late Dora Akunyili at the Petroleum Trust Fund (PTF) and Nigerians will never forget the memory of the amazon, who distinguished herself as a courageous, dependable and patriotic citizen.
