A renowned economist and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Dr. Alex Otti OFR has sent out his condolences to the family, friends, and members of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) over the gruesome murder of an Owerri based legal practitioner and illustrious son of Abia state, Barr. Ndionyenma Nwankwo who was murdered a few days ago in his Chambers by unknown assassins in Owerri.
This was disclosed in a press release signed by Otti’s Media Assistant, Mr. Ferdinand Ekeoma, on February 11, 2021.
Reacting to the news of the murder, Dr. Otti expressed sadness that the killing has cut short the illustrious life and career of the amiable lawyer, and also brought unbearable sorrow and anguish upon his family, friends and loved ones.
He described it as a dastardly act that should not go unpunished, and called on security agents to leave no stone unturned in unravelling the mystery surrounding the senseless killing, by ensuring that the perpetrators are identified, brought to justice and decisively punished so as to serve as a deterrent to other criminals who might want to commit such heinous crimes.
