Governor Willie Obiano In Serious Trouble In Anambra State, Receives Immediate Marching Order

The Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano, has implied that the life of each citizen of the State is now worth two cows.
Governor Obiano made the implication in a speech wherein he said that Fulani herdsmen will pay N500,000 to the family of anyone they kill.
N500,000, as it is well known, is the price of just two cows in the open market.

Reacting to the statement, a source, Eneh Victor Chigozie, said: “N500,000 fine if a herdsman kills someone, is a wrong signal.
“James Eze and his colleague, Harrison Madubueze, are the two most active Media Aides of Gov. Obiano. They must set the record straight.
“Many people are confused as to the statement where Governor Obiano said that it was agreed that herdsmen will pay N500,000, to the family of anyone they kill, and our people will also pay same money to the herdsmen, if they kill any of them.

“I think the public needs better explanation as to what the Governor meant in that speech.
“Human life whether Fulani, Farmer, or Onye Igbo, cannot be placed at a mere N500,000 naira.
“Murder is a serious criminal matter, and it is only the court, and not a Governor, that can place sentence or fine to a suspect.

“Murder should be viewed as a serous abomination, and whoever that kills must face justice through the court, with a huge consequence.
“I do not know which law empowers the Governor to arrive at that conclusion of N500,000 per murder of either a Herder or a Farmer in the State.
“I think the Media handle of the State Government should do the needful.”
