Police vow to fish out killers of Ebonyi principal and teacher

The Ebonyi Police Command on Thursday, October 19, vowed to fish out the killers of a school principal and his teacher. The Principal of Nkaleke Echara Secondary School, Ojiegbe, Simon Ominyi, and his teacher, Moses Nwibo, were both murdered in the school by unknown gunmen on October 13, 2023.  Spokesperson of the command, ASP Onome Onovwakpoyeya, told NAN in Abakaliki that the command had commenced investigation on the matter. We are aware of the incident and police are in top gear to find out the root of the killing in order to bring the perpetrators to book, the PPRO stated.  The state Chairman of the Nigeria Union of Teachers, Francis Okorie, condemned the dastardly act against his members. Mr. Okorie described the incident as shocking and wicked, adding that it was an embarrassment to the society. It is very bad for a sane man or woman to kill a teacher, who only work with chalk and pen, We condemn the act. The cane we are using is just to correct the school children, he said. He said that the union had yet to ascertain the reason behind the killing. Also, the state Chairman of the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria, Chidi Igboji, said it was a shameful act to kill teachers. Yes, they were gruesomely murdered in the line of duty at Nkaleke. This is too bad,  We urge the State Government and security agencies to investigate the matter and ensure that the perpetrators are brought to book, Mr. Igboji said.  The post Police vow to fish out killers of Ebonyi principal and teacher appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
