The Police in Enugu have launched investigation into the murder of the traditional ruler of Nkerefi in Nkanu East local government, Igwe P.A. Onuoha.

A statement from the Police Public Relations Officer of the Enugu State Command, Mr Ebere Amaraizu, said that the traditional ruler was killed with three others in the early hours of Saturday.

Amaraizu also said deceased persons were attacked by unknown gunmen at Mgbanaocha Nkerefi, saying they were left with machete cuts.

He described the killings as unfortunate and said that the police would work hard to establish the motive and bring the perpetrators to book.
