Chime announces N10m reward for information on Kwara CP’s killer


Enugu State governor, Mr Sullivan Chime, on Monday, announced a N10 million reward for anybody that could volunteer information that could lead to the arrest of those behind the killing of the Kwara State Commissioner of Police, Chinwike Asadu, in Enugu.

Speaking when he paid a condolence visit to the residence of the deceased, Governor Chime described the incident as “a big embarrassment to not only the police, but the country at large.”

According to him, “this is most embarrassing, not just to the police, but to the nation. For a senior police officer to be killed in such a manner, to me, is quite unfortunate and the state government has decided to take a position on this, in order to show the seriousness of what has happened, it has followed a pattern.

“What they do now is to follow and kill people with escorts; they kill and collect the guns of their victims. I think it has taken a pattern. So we are paying a ransom of N10 million for anybody that will give us information that will lead to the arrest of the culprits to show the seriousness. It’s quite embarrassing.”

While noting that state would provide all necessary assistance to security agencies in the country to ensure that the killers of commissioner were tracked down and brought to book, the governor described the killing as shocking and dastardly adding that no effort will be spared to fish out the culprits.

He further disclosed that his government would be disposed to assist the family in whichever way to further ameliorate the pains that the killing of their benefactor would cause them, adding that in order to tackle the increasing spate of insecurity in the state, the government had procured police vans, which would be handed over shortly.

Responding on behalf of the bereaved family, the first son of the deceased, Onyekachi, appreciated the police command, the Governor and the nation at large for the outpour of emotions since the incident happened.
