The decomposing body of Samuel Wanjoku, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who was kidnapped two Saturdays ago along Ubima Omawan road in Ikwerre Local Government Area of Rivers State, has been recovered in a forest in the area.

The late Wanjoku, the immediate younger brother to the member representing Ikwerre State constituency in Rivers State House of Assembly, Azubuike Wanjoku, was kidnapped alongside one Moses Ogu on the way while returning from their village in Apani, Ikwerre Local Government after a political party function.

Over a week after the abduction of the two APC chieftains with no contact made to the families of the victims, the body of Wanjoku was found in a forest. Meanwhile, family members and residents of the community, in company of some policemen, are still in search of Agu, while the body of Samuel has been deposited in mortuary.

Reacting, the Ikwerre Youth Movement (IYM) has said the murder of Samuel Wanjoku, also known as ‘Egbe’, the younger brother of the member representing Ikwerre State Constituency in the Rivers state House of Assembly, Azubuike Wanjoku, is a huge blow to IYM.

The socio-political group in a statement by its Deputy President-General, Kingsley Owhondah, called on relevant security agencies to immediately investigate and quickly unravel the perpetrators of the act. The group also condemned what they described as the insensitivity of the Rivers State government over the steady and incessant killing of Ikwerre youths, mostly within the Ikwerre and Emohua Local Government Areas.IYM has in the meantime declared three days of mourning for Samuel Wanjoku beginning from today, November 19.
