“I have within my capacity reached out to some community leaders and the various security outfits in Oguta LGA on the need to maintain the enviable peace and stability in our dear Oguta.
“As your representative, please be assured of my commitment to work with all relevant stakeholders to unravel the remote and immediate cause of this very unwarranted and unfortunate incident that has now seen us addressing one of our own, as deceased.
“Be further assured that we shall take all necessary steps to ensure that appropriate sanctions are meted out and Justice secured for our dear brother Mr. Kelechi Ogbonna.
“May I therefore in the circumstance, appeal to us to be calm and maintain peace even in the face of this seemingly unprovoked incident so as to ensure that the situation is tamed.”
