Anambra Commissioner Reassured Justice For Slain Septuagenarian

The Anambra State Commissioner for Women and Social Welfare, Mrs Ify Obinabo, has reassured of her commitment to bringing to book the killers of Charity Okoli.

Obinabo stated this in her office in Awka, the state capital, while reacting to the news of the death of the septuagenarian, whose organs were allegedly harvested for ritual purposes.

This was according to a press statement by the commissioner’s media aide, Chidimma Ikeanyionwu, on Wednesday.

The deceased was last week attacked at her residence in Umunze, in the Orumba South Local Government Area of the state, where her nipples, private parts, lips and fingers were cut off by her attackers, allegedly for a money ritual.

She was rushed to the Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University Teaching Hospital, Awka, where she was receiving treatment, but later died as a result of injuries sustained.
The commissioner expressed sadness over the death of the 72-year-old woman and vowed to use everything within her office to bring justice to the deceased.

She also urged everyone, especially the women in Umunze, to give the court some time to follow the law and make its judgement.

She explained that she would not relent until other fleeing suspects involved in the dastardly act were apprehended and arraigned before the special court in Awka.
