The residents of Orku community have been charged by the Enugu State Police Command to remain calm following the murder of their town union vice-chairman, Samuel Ani, who was shot dead at his residence.
The command pleaded with the people to be law-abiding as it fishes out the killers of the community leader.
Police in a statement released through Daniel Ndukwe, condemned the brutal killing of Mr Ani, by those who should have protected him if he is being attacked.
The statement partly read, “The Command received an incident report that on 24/2/2021 at about 0730hrs hoodlums, suspected to be among the warring factions of Oruku community, shot and murdered one Samuel Ani (m) at his residence in the community.”
“However, the Commissioner of Police, CP Mohammed N. Aliyu, psc, has enjoined law-abiding residents of the community to remain calm, while the Police intensify efforts to fish out and bring the perpetrators to book, please.”
