She stated that the killing of Izuchukwu Mbakwe over the alleged missing “NOKIA TORCH, has further shown how uncivilized those who ensure the security of life and property treat the ordinary citizens with reckless abandon, saying that this situation will escalate if nothing is done urgently to avert future occurrence.

Barrister Ukaobasi called on the Management of De Choice Eatery, Umuahia to ensure that every bit of information needed in unraveling the truth behind the killing of Izuchukwu Mbakwe by a trigger-happy Vigilante attached to Abia State Vigilante is exposed while proper punishment is meted to the culprit to serve as a deterrent to others, stressing that the same vigilante gunned down a resident of Egwunaeleke last year.

She also called on the Abia State Government, and Abia Commissioner of Police, to ensure that this matter is properly investigated while applying the various laws applicable in prosecuting the trigger-happy vigilante member.
