As the assassination attempt on the life of Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, his wife and son, continue to generate discussion, the Chairman of the South-East Governors’ Forum and Governor of Ebonyi State, Davies Umahi, has demanded thorough investigation into the matter.

Governor Umahi, while receiving the Assistant Inspector General of Police, AIG, in charge of Zone 6, Mr. Samuel Ogunjemilusi, said the South East zone was not satisfied with the police preliminary investigation into the matter which said the attack was a case of burglary.

He said the reason for the call for investigation into the attempt on the lives of  the Ekweremadus was to rebuild the confidence of the people on the Nigerian police as being able to protect the lives and property of every Nigerian, adding that if the case is not followed to its logical conclusion, it may lead to loss of confidence in the security agency.

Governor Umahi noted that the police report of the attempt on the lives of the Ekweremadus was not acceptable as true, adding that a case that led to the near kidnap of Ekweremadu’s son and forcing him to open the door leading to his father’s room was not a mere burglary attempt.
