The House of Representatives member, representing Afikpo North/South Federal Constituency, in the national assembly, Iduma Igariwey has tasked Ebonyi state governor David Umahi to constitute a judicial panel of inquiry to investigate the killing of a seven-month pregnant woman in Ekoli Edda community.

Recall that there was commotion in Ekoli Edda community, resulting from a power tussle that existed between the state chairman of All Progressives Congress, APC, Stanley Emegha, and the former chairman of Afikpo South LGA, Eni Uduma Chima.

Reports said the commotion led to the killing of four youths including a police officer and setting ablaze of houses and other valuables in the area.

Igariwey, however, called on Ebonyi state government to immediately constitute a judicial panel of inquiry to investigate the remote and immediate causes of the mayhem in Afikpo South.

He further urged the warring factions in the Ekoli-Edda in the local government to sheathe their swords and allow peace to reign.
