President Muhammadu Buhari, on Wednesday, commiserated with the family of Dr Chike Akunyili following his gruesome murder by unknown gunmen on Tuesday in Onitsha, Anambra State.
Akunyili is the husband of Dora Akunyili, the late former Director-General of National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC).
President Buhari, who reacted to the sad incident on Wednesday, said the medical doctor’s killers will face the judgement of God and man.
The president’s reaction was contained in a statement by his senior media adviser, Femi Adesina.
“The President shares the pain of the offspring of Prof and Dr Akunyili, their families and friends whose lives will never remain the same after the inhuman and reprehensible act that happened in Onitsha, Anambra State.
“President Buhari has fond memories of working with the late Dora Akunyili at the Petroleum Trust Fund (PTF) and Nigerians will never forget the memory of the amazon, who distinguished herself as a courageous, dependable and patriotic citizen.
“Enjoining security agencies and leaders of thought to work harder to bring an end to the violence being unleashed on innocent Nigerians, the President assures the grieving families who lost their loved ones in the incident that the perpetrators of the heinous act will face both the judgment of man, and that of God,” read the statement.
