President Buhari reacts to gruesome murder of Dr Chike Akunyili

President Buhari has expressed sadness over the gruesome killing of Dr. Chike Akunyili, the husband of the late former Director-General of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), Prof Dora Akunyili.

In a statement released by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, President Buhari said he shares the pain of the offspring of Prof 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 that Nigerians will never forget the memory of the amazon, who distinguished herself as a courageous, dependable, and patriotic citizen.

Enjoining security agencies and leaders of thought to work harder to bring an end to the violence being unleashed on innocent Nigerians, the President assures 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.
