2 min read

The Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) family in Anambra State has been thrown into a mourning mood over the killing of the State Legal Adviser, Barr. Jude Oguejiofor.

The Publicity Secretary of the party in the state, Promise Okongwu revealed this in a press statement made available to journalists.

He said that the slaint legal Adviser was kidnapped last month by gunmen while on a routine visit to his country home in Orsumoghu, alongside his brother, a medical doctor, who was later freed unharmed.

“Barr. Oguejiofor, who hailed from Orsumoghu in Ihiala Local government area of Anambra state was among the 21 man Anambra PDP Caretaker Committee members announced by the National Working Committee of the party on the 17th of January, 2024 and inaugurated subsequently. 

“He had been practicing law for over 15 years and was the principal partner at Jude Oguejiofor & Co. Law Firm in Nnewi before his demise.

“The PDP in Anambra State is pained by the brutality and despicable action of the assailants and posited that the legal luminary had contributed greatly to the progress and development of his community and state for which he was honoured with the title of Ositadimma Orsumoghu.  

“The party therefore wondered what such a good man must have done to warrant cutting his life short under such terrible circumstance.

“The Anambra PDP insists that no human, not even an enemy deserves to die in such gruesome manner and thus demands that the Governor of Anambra State, Charles Chukwuma Soludo, should use the murder of Barr. Jude Oguejiofor as a standpoint to institute urgent measures to put an end to insecurities ravaging the state, especially in Ihiala LGA.

“In the same vein, the Anambra State PDP directs all the 21 Local government party offices in the state to lower their flags in honour of the slain Legal Adviser while urging the party members and Ndi Anambra to put his grieving young family in their daily prayers,” Okongwu stressed.
