The gubernatorial candidate of Labour Party, LP, in Ebonyi State, Mr. Edward Nkwagu, on Friday, condemned in totality the attack on the governorship candidate of All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Prof Benard Odoh by suspected Ebubeagu operatives in the state.
Nkwagu also faulted the continued detention of the former member of the House of Representatives, Linus Okorie in the Abakaliki correctional Centre.
Okorie, who is the Ebonyi South Senatorial Candidate of Labour Party, was arraigned in a Magistrate Court sitting in Abakaliki, for five count charges bordering on alleged murder, conspiracy, felony, among other crimes.
Nkwagu described the incident as wickedness and injurious to both people of the state and the opposition party.
According to him: “It is disheartening and wrong for a suspected armed agent of Ebonyi State Government to deny the opposition party from reaching out its supporters across the state,” he stated.
