Legal practitioners based in Anambra State under the aegis of Nigerian Bar Association, NBA,have during the week protested through a peaceful march against the kidnap and murder of one of their members, Mr Francis Onwuachu, the late President General of Omor Community in Ayamelum Local Government Area.
The legal practitioners, in their hundreds, drawn from the seven NBA divisions in Anambra State, began the protest at the Anambra State Judiciary Headquarters, Awka, from where they marched to main gate of Anambra State Government House, Awka.
They also condemned the murder of the late PG, appealing to Governor Willie Obiano to nail the masterminds of the heinous act.
Mr Onwuachu, a lawyer, was kidnapped by suspected gunmen two recently and his corpse was found a week later after series of intensive and cordinated attempts by the state government through the various security agencies to rescue him alive.
Addressing the protesting lawyers, the Secretary to the Government of Anambra State, Professor Solo Chukwulobelu flanked by other senior government officials, assured them that the state government has already made intense efforts to nip the gruesome development, as the governor has pledged that those who want to distort public safety would be made to pay.
