Men of the Nigerian Police Force Anambra State Command has launched a manhunt for murders of Chukwuma Ojukwu, the Awka-Etiti traditional stool aspirant, in Idemili South LGA.

Haruna Mohammed, the spokesman, disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday.

Mohammed assured that the command will arrest the perpetrators.

“The case is under investigation to ascertain circumstances surrounding the incident and bring fleeing perpetrators to justice,” he said.

Chukwuma was the son of the late monarch of Awka-Etiti, Igwe Akum Ojukwu.

He had insisted on replacing his father, noting that the throne was hereditary.

On September 8, assailants stormed his residence in a bus and allegedly clubbed him to death.
