Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State on Monday called on the Federal Government to investigate the alleged murder of Mrs Obianuju Ndubuisi-Chukwu’s in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The state’s Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Mr Don Adinuba, in a statement urged the Federal Government to prevail on the South African government to take decisive actions over the murder of the Nigerian, the Deputy Director-General of the Chartered Insurance Institute of Nigeria (CIIN) who was reported to have died while attending a meeting of the African Insurance Organisation in the South African commercial capital.

The mother of two boys, was found lifeless in her Emperor Palace Hotel room on Thursday, June 13.

Part of the statement reads, “It has become necessary to request the SGF to personally wade into the killing.

“The police in Johannesburg may be capitalising on the absence of a foreign minister in Nigeria to treat the case with levity.”

The statement further alerts the FG of the death of 53-year old indigene of Anambra State, which report suggests that the South African police are treating her murder as just another Nigerian’s death.

“It is disheartening that more than three weeks after the dastardly act, the South African police have not deemed it necessary to investigate the heinous crime with the seriousness it deserves.

“Ndubuisi-Chukwu was not an ordinary person, but a top corporate executive who was billed to become chief executive of her organisation in 2020.

“She was representing Nigeria at the meeting in Johannesburg where she met her untimely death,” the governor said.

The statement also countered the report of the South African Department of Home Affairs whose autopsy report revealed that Ndubuisi-Chukwu was strangulated declaring that the report is not true.

He described the autopsy report as contradicting an earlier version of the report that suggested that she might have died in her sleep or committed suicide.

Obiano also called on the South African Police to carryout a thorough investigation so as to unravel the person or persons who entered her room after her attendance at the farewell dinner held on Wednesday, June 12 before her tragic death.

“The job has been made easier now because Emperor Palace Hotel has agreed to release the CCTV footage to them,” he added.

The governor also noted that he will not relent in the quest for justice over Anambra indigenes who looses his life in Nigeria or abroad, saying that Ndubuisi-Chukwu’s death has become subject of intense media probing.

He also lauded Prof. Chidi Odinkalu, past Chairman, Nigerian Human Rights Commission, on the effort being made to ensure that those behind the gruesome murder of Ndubuisi-Chukwu are brought to book.
