The Anambra State Governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, has suspended the transition committee chairman of Nnewi North local government area, Mbazulike Iloka.
The newly-appointed TC chairman was suspended in a letter signed by the Anambra State commissioner for local government, chieftaincy and community affairs, Tony Nwabunwanne, over circumstances leading to the death of his wife, Chidiebere IIoka, barely a few days after his swearing-in as Nnewi North transition committee chairman.
It was gathered that the deceased slumped and died after serving her husband’s breakfast, but neighbors and those who knew the couple suspected that Iloka may have killed his wife, as he allegedly had a record of consistently battering her.
The signs of violence were said to have also been found on her body, while a huge wound on her head aroused suspicion, leading to the public outcry over her death.
