I am still in shock over the news of the kidnap and murder of Engr. Dons Udeh. My heart goes out to his family and friends at this difficult time.
It is incredibly sad to see how our society has debased the value of human life. I am particularly heartbroken to see another prominent son of Ozalla attacked in such a manner. While I acknowledge the high level of insecurity across the state and indeed, Nigeria, this is one murder too many, and we must continue to call for better societal values and definitive actions from our political leadership and security outfits.
I urge the security agencies and all relevant stakeholders to ensure that this murder and previous attacks that are yet to be resolved in the State are treated with utmost urgency. The perpetrators must be brought to book and sanity restored to our way of life.
No one has the right to take another human life. This madness must be stopped, and we must return to the values that make us human.
