The Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), in Delta State has expressed disaffection with the activities of cultists and the penchant for the murder of persons.
The party, while reacting to the cold-blooded murder of anti-cult crusader, late Mr Ogu-Chinuwa Austyne Emuamaka, leader of the Anti-Cult Volunteer Corps, on Saturday 5 December, 2020, by persons suspected to belong to cult groups, described the killing as cruel and quite unbecoming.
In a statement by State Publicity Secretary, Dr Ifeanyi Osuoza, the PDP denounced the killing of the Anti-Cult Volunteer Corps leader, describing it as brutal, dastardly and wicked.
“It is quite an unfortunate development at a time and age when all hands should be on deck to co-operate with the Senator, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa-led dynamic administration of the PDP to build a SMART, prosperous, and Stronger Delta, there are on the prowl some unscrupulous persons going about with malicious, spiteful, vindictive, and vicious intentions against their compatriots.”
The party called on security agencies not to rest on their oars in going after and apprehending the forces behind the killing of Mr Ogu-Chinuwa Austyne Enuamaka.
“Arresting and bringing them to face justice is the only means of assuaging the pains inflicted on the family, well-wishers, and the psyche of the generality of Deltans.
“It is the duty of the police and other security agencies to fish out the murderous elements, thereby sending a resounding signal that cult killing activities are anathema and unacceptable in Delta,” the party noted.
The Delta PDP commiserated with the family of late Austyne Emuamaka, and prayed God give them the fortitude to bear the painful and irreparable loss.
