Ozubulu killing: Osinbajo sends five ministers to Anambra


The delegation, according to the Presidency, is made up of the Minister of Health, Isaac Adewole; Minister of Labour, Chris Ngige; Foreign Affairs Minister, Geoffrey Onyeama; Minister of State for Education, Prof A. Anwuka and the Minister of Environment, Ibrahim Jibril.

Akande said the delegation would present a condolence letter from the acting president on behalf of the government and people of Nigeria to Governor Willie Obiano.

In the letter, Osinbajo extended deep commiserations to the families, friends of the victims, and the community on the death of their sons and daughters, praying for the speedy recovery of the injured.

The Acting President condemned in very strong terms, the Sunday incident calling it atrocious.

The acting president was quoted thus: "Such barbaric act constitutes an affront to our common humanity, and challenges, but will not overwhelm our collective resolve to rid our communities of all forms of violent crimes and criminality".
